Final Yard Waste Collection Round Begins May 6

May 1, 2019 10:27 AM

Backyard composting of yard waste is optimal.  Half of the phosphorous load in our urban stormwater can be attributed to leaves in the street.  But not everybody can compost, so please take note of this update from the city on the final round this spring for yard waste collection.

The final round of spring yard waste collection will begin on Monday, May 6, 2019.

Upon the completion of this collection round, curbside yard waste pickup will end for the season and crews will be assigned to other duties. Curbside yard waste pickup will return in the fall. The start date of the fall collection period is weather dependent and will be announced when that date is known.

Residents who wish to utilize the curbside collection of yard waste should go to the yard waste website (www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste) and click on the Pickup Schedule button to learn when to place material to the curb for their final pickup round for the spring.

Once of the Pickup Schedule map, if a neighborhood is shaded green for "Pickup Pending" residents in those areas should place yard waste to the curb because collection crews will be there soon. And when the maps shows a neighborhood marked "Season Over," residents in those neighborhoods should not place yard waste to the curb again until the collection service resumes in the fall.

The Pickup Schedule map is updated daily during the collection rounds. Residents who wish to have curbside yard waste collection are encouraged to check the map regularly so they do not miss their final spring collection opportunity.

City of Madison residents can also use the Streets Division drop-off sites for yard waste. The drop-off sites for yard waste are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd., 4602 Sycamore Ave., and 402 South Point Rd. They are open 8:30am to 4:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. And they are open 8:30am to 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These hours will remain in effect until December 8, 2019. Additional information on restrictions and material accepted at the drop-off sites can be found on the Streets Division's website.

Additional information about yard waste is available on the Streets Division yard waste website, www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste. On this website you can find the rules and regulations for yard waste collection plus there is a short video that explains how yard waste should be placed for pickup . Residents can also call the yard waste collection hotline at 608-267-2088 to learn collection time estimates. The hotline recording is updated weekly.
