Alder Carter’s Updates

Recycle and Refuse Schedule on MLK Day - January 21st.

January 15, 2020 9:44 PM

The Streets Division will be closed for curbside collections on Monday in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

The drop-off sites will also be closed.  

A few additional points to make that are not in this particular press release:

The holiday will not stop the street division from doing any necessary snow-related work. The forecasts for Monday show it as being dry and very cold.

Christmas Tree collection process begins January 21st. It takes multiple days to loop through the city.  The trees should be out by 7:00 a.m. on January 21 and Streets will get them as soon as they can. If the City receives another dollop of snow this weekend, residents that have Christmas trees out for pickup already will need to free them from the snow so we can see them and collect them.


Recycling/Refuse back on schedule on Tuesday, January 21st.

Madison residents who normally have their refuse and recycling collected on Mondays should instead place their carts to the curb for collection on Tuesday, January 21 by 7:00 a.m. Refuse and recycling for residents that have a Tuesday collection day will also be collected on January 21. 

Residents must have their scheduled collection carts out and ready for pickup prior to 7:00 a.m.  Carts set out after 7:00 a.m. may not be collected until the next scheduled collection. 

Other Streets Division services such as large item and Christmas tree collection, may be temporarily delayed on January 21 as crews need to be diverted from their regular tasks in order to assist collection of refuse and recycling.

The drop-off sites will reopen for winter hours at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Av. on the east side. 

Information about all of the Streets Division's recycling and solid waste services, including additional information on drop-off site hours, is available at our web site.
