Residents are encouraged to mow and mulch their leaves into their lawn. Mulched leaf litter is a good addition to a healthy lawn. For those who wish not to mow their leaves - the City of Fort Atkinson’s leaf pick up is scheduled from October 28th – November 22nd. Leaf pick up will start on October 28th, in the NE quadrant of the City and work in a counter clockwise rotation of the City. The crews will make as many rounds of the City as time allows until the end of the pick-up on November 22nd.
Residents must keep their leaves on the terrace (between the sidewalk and curb) to avoid storm water impacts on water quality. Please keep your leaf piles away from electric poles and any other obstructions. Brush and limbs must be kept separate from the leaves.
The City’s compost site will be open Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for leaf and brush drop off only. There are extended hours at the compost site on Wednesdays from 3:00 p.m. to sunset as well as Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for leaf and brush drop off.
The drop off for appliances and electronic recycling at the compost site is only available on Wednesdays from 3:00 p.m. to sunset and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
