Alder Heck’s Updates

Collection of Flood Damaged Items UPDATE August 24

August 24, 2018 3:51 PM

Due to the widespread damage caused by the historic flooding in Madison, the Streets Division has changed the initial plan for how flood damaged items will be collected.

Please note that the below plan is subject to change based on weather and flooding conditions. If Streets Division crews are needed elsewhere in response to the flooding event, the collection plan for flood-damaged materials will be updated again.

All residents of Madison will receive large item collection on their regularly scheduled refuse pickup day during the week of August 27.  This includes flood-damaged items like carpet and furniture.

If you have experienced flood damage and have items for disposal, place that material to the curb as soon as possible.

On Monday, August 27, crews will collect flood damaged large items and refuse from all residents with a scheduled Monday refuse pickup day. 

On Tuesday, August 28, crews will collect flood damaged large items and refuse from all residents with a scheduled Tuesday refuse pickup day

On Wednesday, August 29, crews will collect flood damaged large items and refuse from all residents with a scheduled Wednesday refuse pickup day.

On Thursday, August 30, crews will collect flood damaged large items and refuse from all residents with a scheduled Thursday refuse pickup day.

On Friday, August 31, crews will collect flood damaged large items and refuse from all residents with a scheduled Friday refuse pickup day.

Residents should use their refuse collection cart for flood damaged refuse than can fit inside of it. Also, residents should bag small refuse items that cannot fit into the collection cart. Do not pile small loose items at the curb.

Residents no longer need to report flood damage to the curb via the Report-a-Problem system. They should place flood-damaged material to the curb for pickup during the week of August 27 as outlined above.

Streets Division staff will assess conditions at the end of next week to determine if another round of citywide large item collection will be scheduled for the week of September 3.

Recycling Collection for the Week of August 27

Recycling collection for residents who have recycling pickup scheduled for the week of August 27 will have their green recycling cart emptied.

Residents with scheduled recycling collection will also have their tan refuse cart emptied, and will also have large items set to the curb collected as part of the response to collecting flood damaged material.

Flood Damaged Paper & Cardboard Is Not Recyclable

Paper and cardboard that have been saturated with water cannot be recycled. Do not place this material into your recycling cart. This material should be placed into your refuse container, or bagged as excess refuse.

Drop-off Site Restrictions

Residents disposing of flood-damaged items are not restricted to one-trip a day to the drop-off sites. The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd and 4602 Sycamore Ave. The sites are only available to City of Madison residents. Proof of residency is required to use the site.

Other drop-off site restrictions, such as the size of a load and a prohibition of contractors from using the sites, are still in effect.

For more information about the drop-off sites, visit the Streets Division website.
