The City of Oconto is pleased to announce that, due to a generous grant from the Leon H. and Clymene M. Bond Foundation, the City’s annual fireworks display will be twice as large as it has been in the past! Look for a slightly longer show with bigger and more display effects! The City’s fireworks display will be held on Wednesday, July 3 at 10:00 p.m. at Breakwater Park.
The overflow procedure for the sewer treatment plant is being shut off at this time. Currently, the treatment plant is able to keep up with the sewage flows. Sewage is no longer being pumped into the river. If anything changes, you will be notified again via this page.

SPRING LOOSE LEAF
City of Oconto
The City of Oconto Department of Public Works will begin its spring curbside collection of leaves and garden waste on April 15th until May 17th. 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.
If you have any questions, call 834-7725 between 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
