Update: Kelly Freeman, Streets Superintendent, indicates that the city crew is kindly making an additional sweep through the city on Monday, November 22 to accommodate residents who missed the deadline. After this sweep is completed any remaining leaves will have to be taken to the dumpster (see below information.)
The following information was posted on the Banner on November 14, 2021.
The City of Whitewater – Department of Public Works will be making the final pickups of leaf and yard waste beginning on Wednesday, November 17. All bags must be brought to the curb by that date.
For residents who miss the deadline, a dumpster will be available at the City garage (150 E. Starin Rd.) between November 22 – December 3, between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. This dumpster is for “yard waste,” defined as leaves, weeds, grass clippings, and yard/garden debris. Bio (biodegradable) bags may be thrown in the dumpster; however, all other bags must be emptied. Please note our facility will be closed on Thursday, November 25, and Friday, November 26. Spring collection will be dependent on weather conditions.
