TV recycling charge - $15

January 3, 2017 6:53 PM

Television Recycling Fee Now $15


The Streets Division would like to remind the residents of the City of Madison that the recycling fee for televisions is now $15 per unit.


Televisions are banned from the landfill due the hazardous material inside them and they must be recycled.  They should never be placed into one of the curbside collection carts, either.  City of Madison residents must bring their televisions to one of the Streets Division drop-off sites for the City to recycle it. 


In order to recycle a television with the Streets Division, residents must first obtain a $15 recycling fee sticker for each TV they need to recycle.  Stickers can be purchased at any city of Madison public library, the Treasurer's Office in the City-County Building, or at either Streets Division office. Stickers can also be purchased online at  Stickers do not print on demand from the website, and they will be mailed to you after a successful purchase.


After the sticker has been obtained, you must affix it to the television and bring the TV with sticker to a drop-off site.


The drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. and 4602 Sycamore Ave.  The sites are currently open from 7:30am to 3:00pm Monday to Friday. These hours will remain in effect until the expanded hours begin on March 25, 2017.


City of Madison residents or taxpayers that have a $10 sticker to recycle a television will need to obtain an additional $5 appliance sticker in order to meet the new $15 fee.


All other appliance fees for the City of Madison will remain the same at this time. For a complete list of items requiring an additional fee, please visit our website: 


Televisions, and many other electronic items, are banned from the landfill, so everyone must recycle them.  For a complete list of all public and private registered electronics recycling (or E-Cycle) vendors, and the list of electronics banned from landfills, visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website:
