Milwaukee DPW crews to work extended hours to collect garbage

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) Sanitation crews will work extended hours Wednesday, January 8th through Friday, January 10th to collect garbage and recycling. Crews will also work on Saturday, January 11th to catch up on collections suspended due to the dangerously cold temperatures.

Residents are reminded to shovel a path to and around all carts to help ensure that there are no disruptions with garbage and recycling collection service delivery. Christmas trees should be placed at your curb or alley collection point for pick-up. Residents can also recycle their old trees by taking them to a City Self-Help Center.
