Events

Announcements

  • Brush collection is slowly winding down for the year. Make sure you don't miss your brush pickup opportunities by getting your schedule at www.cityofmadison.com/BrushCollection
  • In-person absentee voting starts on July 26th for the August partisan primary. You can find the list of in-person absentee voting locations by clicking here. This week, the Clerk's office posted a helpful reminder of what types of photo IDs you can use for voting in Wisconsin.
  • OMG! The Outdoor Music Guide is Now Available: The Outdoor Music Guide (OMG) is a new resource that describes the ways someone can run an outdoor live music show, whether it is hosted by an individual, organization or a business. Created by the City to assist musicians and music business owners, the OMG document summarizes all the options based on City ordinances with the understanding that every activity is unique and other rules may apply. The City hopes that this tool answers questions and facilitates the delivery of music-related activities while fostering a vibrant music scene in the community.
  • CARES Team Expands with Second Response Team and Second Station Location to Better Serve City's West and South Sides: The Community Alternative Response Emergency Services (CARES) program, is a multi-agency program for addressing non-violent, behavioral health-related emergencies. Dane County's 911 dispatch center dispatches CARES units to these emergencies as an alternative to police. The goal of a CARES response is to assess, de-escalate, treat, and refer or transport patients, as needed, to behavioral health services in the community. The City has expanded the CARES program from one team to two and will be responding from a second location at 2120 Fish Hatchery Road to better access and serve the City's West and South Sides.
  • Food Scraps Drop-off at Farmers' Markets a Success: Drop-off is available Tuesday evenings at the Eastside and South Madison farmers' markets. The markets will be accepting food scraps every Tuesday at the market location until September 27, 2022.
    • The South Madison Farmers' Market is located at 1602 South Park Street and it accepts food scraps from 2:00pm to 6:00pm on Tuesdays.
    • The Eastside Farmers' Market is located at 202 S. Ingersoll Street and it accepts food scraps from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Tuesdays.

You can learn more about their locations and the acceptable food scraps at www.cityofmadison.com/FoodScraps. Information about the program is also available at the market booths. Folks who wish to participate in the food scraps drop-off program can pick up a free small bucket from the food scraps drop-off booths at the Tuesday evening Eastside and South Madison farmers' market.

  • August Moving Days - www.cityofmadison.com/MovingDays
    • August Moving Days: Daily Collections of Carts in Student Move Area: Starting at 6:30 a.m. on Monday August 1, 2022 residents in the downtown moving days area can place trash and recycling collection carts out for pickup. On every weekday between Monday, August 1 and Monday, August 15, Streets Division crews will be emptying collection carts within the downtown moving days area. You can read the full release here.
    • August Moving Days: How to Use the Large Item Work Order System during the Move Out: Starting the week of August 7, 2022 and ending on Friday, August 19, 2022, the large item work order rules are different for items that are collected at no cost for residents who live in the downtown move-out area. There are no changes to the work order rules for large items that require a fee, like microwaves, televisions, or air conditioners. If you live in the student move out area, you will not be required to complete a work order for large Items that do not require a fee from August 8, 2022 until around 12:00pm on Friday, August 19, 2022. Read the full release here.
    • August Moving Days: How to Set Out Appliances, Furniture, & Other Large Items for Collection. Please follow these guidelines so Streets Division collections will be faster and safer. If you are moving, it is in your best interest to set the items out within the guidelines so crews can collect the items quickly and minimize the congestion caused by large, slow moving collection vehicles.
      • Keep items away from obstructions like fire hydrants and street signs.
      • Do not place items under overhead obstructions like low-hanging wires and low tree limbs, too.
      • Keep the large item piles tidy. For example, if you have disassembled a desk, stack the wood pieces neatly.
      • Separate metal items and appliances, such as bed frames or air conditioners, separate from other material so they can be easily collected and recycled.
      • Do not pile bagged trash or recyclables on top of large items or appliances.
      • Remember to use your collection carts for trash and recyclables that can fit inside. And never make loose heaps of papers, clothes, or other waste that can blow around and clutter your neighborhood.

Please review that release or check the Streets Division's Moving Days webpage to be sure you are using the system the right way. The moving days website is www.cityofmadison.com/MovingDays.

If you live outside of the move-out area and have questions regarding the large item system, please review the large item website, www.cityofmadison.com/LargeItem.
