Garden debris, small sticks, and twigs MUST be in the 2-ply Kraft paper compost bags or in an open container with handles not larger than thirty (30) gallons and not weighing more than fifty (50) pounds. Plastic bags, paper bags or boxes of any kind containing yard waste will not be collected. (Note…there is a difference between a compost bag and a regular paper bag.) Grass clippings will be accepted. However, the City of Kaukauna and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources encourage residents to leave their grass clippings on the lawn. Lawn clippings are a good
source of fertilizer and can also make excellent compost. If there are any questions call the Street Department office at 920.766.6337.
