Final Round of Brush Collection Begins Monday, October 14

October 7, 2019 10:22 AM

The Streets Division will begin the final guaranteed round of brush collection of the year on Monday, October 14, 2019.

Residents who wish to utilize the curbside brush collection service this year should have their brush to the curb prior to October 14. 

Placing brush to the curb after October 14 risks it not being collected until regular brush collection operations begin again in the spring of 2020.

Upon conclusion of the final collection round, brush collection personnel will be reassigned to assist with leaf/yard waste collection and other duties

Brush Collection Guidelines
When placing brush out for collection, be sure to have the cut ends all facing the same direction and piles should be four feet away from obstructions like fire hydrants and street signs.

Brush piles should be kept separate from yard waste piles. Brush collection and yard waste collection are different operations. Piles of brush and yard waste mixed together will not be picked up.

Pickup Schedule Map
Residents who wish to minimize the length of time it sits at the curb should use the Pickup Schedule map on the Streets Division's brush website, www.cityofmadison.com/brushcollection

Once on the Pickup Schedule map, Madison residents can enter their address in the upper left corner of the page. This will zoom the map into their immediate neighborhood.

If the map for the neighborhood is shaded green for Pickup Pending, then crews will be around very soon, so residents must get brush to the curb at that time to take advantage of the collection opportunity. The map is updated at the end of each workday, so residents using the map should check it regularly.

Drop-off Sites 
Madison residents and taxpayers can also bring one load of a brush a day to either Streets Division drop-off site.  Brush loads brought to a drop-off site may not exceed 5' x 8', which means the brush load would fit into the bed of a standard pick-up truck or small trailer.  Loads that are too large will be denied use of the drop-off site and directed to use the brush processing center. 

The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Ave on the east side.  Contractors may not use these drop-off sites.

The Sycamore and Badger sites are open seven days a week from 8:30am to 4:30pm and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  These hours of operation will remain in effect until December 8, 2019.

Brush Processing Center
Contractors, as well as residents, can bring brush they have cut to the brush processing center at 121 E. Olin Ave to be chipped for a per-ton fee. Additional information about the brush processing center, including hours of operation and fees, can be found on  the Streets Division website, or by contacting the center at 608-266-4911.

Additional Information
Additional information about brush collection, including a short video that explains brush collection operations, can be found on the Streets Division's brush website, www.cityofmadison.com/brushcollection.

Residents can also call the brush collection hotline at 608-267-2088 for curbside collection time estimates that are updated weekly, or call the Streets Division office that services their neighborhood.  Residents that live east of South Park Street, and that includes the isthmus, should call the east side Streets Division at 608-246-4532.  Residents that live west of South Park Street should call the west side Streets Division at 608-266-4681.
