Loose Leaf Collection:
What is the leaf collection schedule? 

Public Works began leaf collection on Monday, October 15 and it continues through the week of Monday, November 12. Collection is typically weekly, but there is no specific collection schedule.Collection is dependent on crew availability and the volume of leaves that need to be collected.

Where Do I Place My Leaves? 

Leaves should be placed near or in the curb of the street. Please place leaves away from storm inlets as leaf decay can clog storm sewers and add unwanted material to Lake Michigan.

Can I Throw Yard Waste in the Leaf Pile?
At this time of year, the Village encourages property owners to throw certain yard waste material (this includes plant material such as flowers and garden material; no grass clippings) in the leaf piles to preclude a separate yard waste pick-up. Branches, sticks, and other woody material should not be placed with the leaves and should be left on the parkway for chipping. Check out the Brush Chipper section below for more detail.
Whitefish Bay Public Works Department:
Notice of Street Light Outages

The Circle Drive Area Street Light Replacement Project began on Wednesday, September 26.This old street light circuit is the last remaining original street light circuit in the Village and is in very poor condition.  

This existing lighting circuit is wired in series, has direct bury wire, requires the use of a separate non-traditional power source and transformer, and has required a substantial amount of maintenance. 

The new street light circuit to be installed will be wired in parallel, operate off of a traditional power service and utilize break-away street light poles for vehicle safety. For more information on this project, click here.
Brush Chipper

Wednesdays/Thursdays starting on the north end of Village (bi-weekly).

Brush should be placed in the parkway between the curb and the sidewalk. It should not obstruct the sidewalk or be placed in the street. Thicker sections of brush should face the street.

No-Charge Brush Pickup: A pile of brush with a size less than 5 feet by 7 feet by 20 feet will be collected at no cost.

Brush Special Pickup: A pile of brush that exceeds the parameters of a No-Charge Brush Pickup, with maximum combined size of 5 feet by 7 feet by 40 feet will be collected at a cost of $45, contact Village Hall for details.

Whitefish Bay Police Department:
Notice of Current Telephone Scam

The Whitefish Bay Police Department has received several reports of a scam involving calls from a caller pretending to be the Wisconsin Department of Energy or the Wisconsin Utilities Company.

The caller states that the person has an overdue bill and if the bill is not paid two people will be sent out to disconnect their service. The caller advises the person to call 1-800-631-9171 and select option 1. These calls are not legitimate.

Please do not provide money or personal information to anyone over the phone if you did not solicit the call.
Safety First - Please help our community by locking up!

Please remove items of value from the interior of your vehicles. Please keep your doors and windows of your homes secure. 

Too often thieves find keys or fobs in unlocked cars and then steal the car. They drive recklessly putting the lives of your family, innocent citizens, and your police at great risk. Please keep exterior lights on during the evening hours. It deters the thieves from going on to your property and it aids the police in spotting these thieves as they sneak around our community. 

If you see somebody at night paying too close attention to your property or your neighbors' property who isn't your neighbor please call 911 right away.
Refuse and Recycling Collection:
This week is B-Route Recycling Collection November 5 - November 9

Please note that cart lids must close for automated pickup to occur. Any extra recycling outside the cart such as cardboard will not be picked up. This requires a paid special pickup.  

Please have cart(s) out by 7:00 am on your pickup day, spaced a minimum of three feet apart from each other and any obstruction, and 3' or less from the curb. As you may have noticed, refuse and recycling routes are starting in different areas than before, so your collection will be missed if not out by 7:00 am.

Please take a moment to make sure your carts are staged properly for automated pickup. Please make sure your lid fits securely prior to pickup. Open lids allow debris to fall into the street. The arrows on the lid should point to the street.

For more program details, a timeline of this program, and the history of public meetings on this program see the website page dedicated to the program here:

Additional Carts are available for purchase for $75 at the Village Hall.
