Due to the unprecedented extremely high water levels, the Oconto Utility Wastewater Treatment Plant is currently over capacity.

This INCLUDES the Town of Oconto, Town of Pensaukee and Town of Little River. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
FALL LOOSE LEAF
City of Oconto
The City of Oconto Department of Public Works will begin its fall curbside collection of leaves and garden waste on October 14th until November 15th. This material should be placed at the curb in separate piles. Leaves should be in a row no more than 4 feet wide and approximately 3 feet high. Leaves should be placed in open areas and not around obstacles such as street signs or trees or will not be picked up. Bagged material or mixed material will not be picked up.
Do not put leaves into the street. Place the leaves between the curb and the sidewalk and as close to the curb as possible. Leaves placed on the street will not be picked-up unless placed back in the area defined for proper pick-up. Brush cannot be mixed in with leaf piles.
Residents may also bring their loose leaves and garden waste to the City’s yard waste site, which is located at 1616 Main St.
It is not possible to accurately tell residents the exact day their leaves and garden wastes will be picked up.
