Fall Leaf Collection

Leaf collection begins the week of October 17th.  Scheduled collections will be on your recycling collection day and will go through November 11th.  We understand that mother nature does not always work with our collection schedule and will continue to pick up leaves through the months November and even December if needed. 

After November 11th the crews will work from the East side of the Village to the West side of the Village (This might not be on your recycling day) until collections aren’t needed or a major snow fall occurs.  If we receive a large enough snow fall at any time that requires the Department to plow the streets, leaf collection will have to end.  We use the same equipment for leaf collection as we do for snow removal and public safety is our number one priority.

Bus Route Changes

Currently, Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) Route 60 comes down S. 60th Street and travels down Northway through Downtown Greendale.  Due to low ridership, effective August 28, 2022, Route 60 will no longer come down Northway in the Village.  MCTS has agreed to send Route 76 down Northway in order to still serve this area.   Route 76 will come down Northway approximately every 45 minutes, specific route information can be found in the link below.

Pedestrian Improvements on Broad Street

In a continued effort to improve safety, a pedestrian safety/ADA improvement project will take place on Broad Street mid-block between Northway/Schoolway (where the existing crosswalk is).  The project costs are 100% funded by Community Development Block Grants. 

 This project will begin in early October and take approximately 3 weeks to complete.  While the construction is going on a portion of Broad Street will be closed, and the detour route will be Parking Street.  The parking lots for the Downtown businesses will still be accessible during the construction.

The project will involve constructing fa lat-topped speed hump (similar to a speed table) designed to physically limit the speed at which a vehicle can traverse it.
