The first large item collection in the City of Sturgeon Bay will take place on Friday. Starting this month, crews from the street department will be picking up items that cannot be put out for the normal weekly garbage pickup. Residents are required to schedule their pickup in advance and pay a $25 non-refundable fee per scheduled collection. Items that require special disposal such as televisions and microwaves will require a separate fee of $32 each. The large item collection will continue on the second Friday of the month through October. For more information, contact the Sturgeon Bay Street Department at 746-2912.
