The Streets Division will begin the final round of brush collection next week. The final round will begin when collection starts in the Monday refuse collection district.
"Every neighborhood in the city will receive one more brush collection, starting Monday," Madison recycling coordinator said. "It is our goal to be done with brush collection by the time leaf volume picks up so we can assign brush crews to leaf collection."
Madison residents should get their brush trimmed and to the curb as soon as possible to avoid missing the final collection of the season. You can get updated information on when crews are expected in your area by calling 267-2088 or by going to www.cityofmadison.com/streets .
Madison residents can also bring their brush to the Streets Division's drop off sites at 1501 W. badger Rd and 4602 Sycamore Av. The sites are open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and on Tuesday and Thursday they are open until 8 p.m.
"This was the second year that brush was not collected on a monthly schedule," Dreckmann said. "Under the old schedule system each neighborhood received seven collections. This year we will provide each neighborhood with eight rounds of collection."
