Recycle tag waiver for flood victims extended

August 30, 2018 12:25 PM

Recycling Fee Sticker Waiver Extended to Friday, September 7 The recycling fee sticker waiver for residents impacted by flood damage has been extended to Friday, September 7. Flood damaged items that require a recycling fee sticker will be collected from the curb without one. Residents can also deliver flood-damaged items that would require a sticker to the drop-off sites without obtaining one. Recycling fee stickers will be required again for items that require one starting on Saturday, September 8. For a complete list of items that require a recycling fee sticker, please visit the Streets Division website. Televisions Televisions that have been flood-damaged should still be delivered to the drop-off sites. Televisions contain hazardous material like lead and mercury. Placing televisions at the curb risks them being broken, and releasing their hazardous material into the storm drain system. Computers & Electronics Computers, and other electronics, should also still be delivered to a drop-off site for recycling. Computers and other electronics can contain sensitive personal information. Placing these items at the curb risks someone other than city crews picking them up, and therefore potentially exposing residents to identity theft. The Streets Division works with an electronics recycler that takes great care to destroy personal information on computers and other devices, meaning it is far safer for residents to bring computers and other electronics to a drop-off site or another reputable electronics recycler rather than placing them at the curb. Drop-off Sites The Streets Division drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd and 4602 Sycamore Ave. The sites can only be used by City of Madison residents, and proof of residency is required to use the sites. The sites are open 8:30am to 4:30 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The sites are open 8:30am to 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please note that the drop-off sites will be closed on Monday, September 3 in observance of Labor Day. Additional Information For additional information about the drop-off sites, recycling fees, and other Streets Division services, visit the Streets Division website, www.cityofmadison.com/streets.
