Milwaukee DPW: Garbage and recycling pick up to begin an hour early Thursday and Friday due to heat
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- On Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19, the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works garbage and recycling pick up will begin an hour earlier than normally scheduled.
DPW suggests residents have their carts out and accessible for collection the night before their scheduled pickup or by 6 a.m. the day of.
The change is in response to a heat advisory issued for Thursday and Friday. The public is asked to place their carts out early to minimize the amount of time sanitation crews have to work in these conditions.
