DAYLIGHT SAVINGS & ALTERNATE STREET SIDE PARKING -
Daylight Savings was this weekend, I hope you remember to adjust your clocks. Alternate Side Parking begins November 15th and ends March 15th. For details visit city of madison parking.

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR PUMPKINS -
Now that the 2016 Halloween is behinds us what do we do with our pumPkins. Place them at the curb along with leaves for collection this fall. Leaves should be placed in piles at the street edge for collection with the pumpkins on top.  Do not place your leaves in the street or gutter. Residents who elect to bag their leaves should place their pumpkins on the ground next to their bagged leaves. Those who bag their leaves are reminded to leave the bags open at the top so crews can identify what is inside the bag.

Alternatively, your pumpkins could surrender their nutrients and join the choir invisible in residents' very own back yard compost bin.  Pumpkins are a great source of nitrogen for the backyard piles.

In addition to collecting pumpkins, City of Madison crews will also collect other organic Halloween/Fall decorations such as other decorative gourds, corn stalks, and straw as part of the leaf  collection. You may also bring this material to our yard waste drop off sites at 4602 Sycamore Ave.  The site is presently open from 8:30am to 4:30pm seven days a week and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  These hours will remain in effect until Sunday, December 4.
