We’re here to help you find the Green Bay trash pickup schedule for 2023 including bulk pickup, recycling, holidays, and maps.
The City of Green Bay is in Wisconsin with Milwaukee and Brookfield to the south, Appleton and Madison to the southwest, and Wausau to the northwest.
If there’s a change to your normal trash collection schedule then there’s a good chance your street sweeping schedule has changed too so make sure to check for updates.

Trash Pick Up Holidays
Place carts out on your normal collection day to assure collection. When a full-day holiday (New Year’s, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) falls on a regular workday (Monday – Friday) garbage and recycling collection will
be delayed by one (1) workday after the holiday, with Friday collection routes being completed on Saturday.
When a half-day holiday (Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, and Good Friday) falls on a regular workday, garbage and recycling collection will remain on the normal collection day.
