New Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Schedule Now Available

September 30, 2020 7:44 PM

Collection begins the week of October 11, 2020

For the fall of 2020, all neighborhoods of Madison have assigned days when they should set leaves and yard waste out for curbside collection.

The leaves and yard waste collection schedule is now available at www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste.

Go to the Streets Division's yard waste website and enter your address into the form provided to learn the dates when you should set out leaves and yard waste for pickup.

Residents without internet access can contact the Streets Division office that services their home to receive the set-out dates for their home.

 

How the Collection System Will Work

After entering your address, you will see three dates when you should set out leaves and yard waste for pickup.

You can set out leaves and yard waste for any or all of the scheduled set-out dates.

Each of the dates listed on the website is a Sunday.

Collection crews will be working through the scheduled neighborhoods the week following the date listed on the website.

Residents must get their leaves and yard waste out for collection by the dates shown on the website. Placing them out after the listed set-out dates may result in missing a collection opportunity.

 

Follow Collection Rules

Do not place yard waste into the street.

Placing yard waste into the street creates a nutrient-rich runoff that goes into the storm drains. The drains funnel water in our waterways, causing algae blooms other problems in our lakes. Keep our streets leaf-free and protect our lakes.

When the collection season is underway, you can pile leaves and yard waste loose on the terrace, or place the material into bags or under a tarp.

If bagging leaves and yard waste, compostable paper lawn bags are preferred. All bags should be kept open at the top so crews can identify what is inside.

More information about how to set leaves out for pickup can be found on the Streets Division's website.

 

Drop-off Sites Hours Remain Limited – Expect Lines for Entry

The drop-off sites at 1501 W. Badger Rd, 4602 Sycamore Ave, and 402 South Point Rd are open to accept yard waste. The sites are open 7:30am to 2:50pm Monday to Friday, and 9:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays.

The number of vehicles allowed into the unloading area at the sites is limited to help social distancing and the overall safety of the facilities.

Due to the limited hours and restrictions on the number of people unloading at a single time, you are likely to encounter a long line when trying to unload material at the drop-off sites – so please remember to pack your patience along with the materials you need to recycle or dispose.

Visit the Streets Division's website for more information about the drop-off sites.
