Curbside Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Ending for 2019

November 22, 2019 11:16 PM

The Streets Division's curbside collection for yard waste and leaves is ending for 2019. Residents should not place additional leaves and yard waste on the terrace for collection. Instead, residents should use a Streets Division drop-off site.

The Streets Division cannot guarantee that residents will receive another curbside leaf collection, considering the lateness of the year and the likelihood of a winter event occurring before everyone receives another collection.

Any leaves placed on the terrace at this time are subject to being left until spring of 2020 when curbside collection resumes. 

If and when the weather allows, the Streets Division will assign crews to perform curbside leaf and yard waste collection. However, collection of curbside piles of yard waste and leaves this season is no longer guaranteed.

Residents must be aware that if a winter event occurs, the Streets Division must assign staff to snow plowing duties, which means no personnel will be available for leaf collection.  And it is possible that in the event of a winter storm, curbside leaf piles will be buried under the snow and will remain frozen on the terrace until the spring thaw of 2020.

Residents who still have yard waste for disposal are encouraged to take the material one of the City of Madison drop-off sites.

The drop-off sites are still on expanded hours. The sites are open 8:30am to 4:30pm seven days a week and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Expanded hours will end on December 8, 2019. The drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd, 4602 Sycamore Ave., and 402 South Point Rd.

On December 9, 2019, winter drop-off site hours begin.  Winter drop-off site hours are 7:30am to 3pm. Monday to Friday.  The South Point Rd location will also close for the season when winter hours start.

Additional information about the drop-off sites and yard waste collection can be found on the Streets Division's website,
