Yard Waste Sites Open all Weekend 8:30 a.m. Until 4:30 p.m.
There will be no refuse or recycling collection in the City of Madison on Monday September 1st due to the Labor Day holiday. Residents who have their refuse and recycling collected on Monday will have their material collected on Tuesday, September 2nd. Residents in Tuesday's refuse collection district will also have their material collected the 2nd.
"Because of the double collection on Tuesday the 2nd it is important that residents have their material out on time," Madison Recycling Coordinator George Dreckmann said. "East side residents should have their material out by 6 a.m. on Tuesday and west side residents should have their material out by 7 a.m."
Because of the holiday, the Streets Division's large item service will be curtailed. Residents are asked to hold off putting out large items, such as appliances and furniture until the week of September 8th.
Brush collection in Monday's area will begin on September 2nd. Residents in Monday's area should have their brush at the curb by 7 a.m. on Tuesday the 2nd to insure collection sometime during the week.
