Drop-off Site Will Remain Closed until at least April 2023

The Streets Division’s drop-off site located at 1501 W. Badger Rd will be closing on March 25, 2022 for a construction project.  The site will remain closed until at least the spring of 2023.

Closing Badger Rd will create many changes to the drop-off site services provided by the Streets Division. The below information provides an overview of these changes and alternative drop-off locations besides the Badger Rd site.

Additional releases will be published in the weeks ahead explaining all of the service adjustments residents can expect. In the meantime, you can read about all these changes now at our drop-off sites website,

Why is the Badger Rd drop-off site closing?
