Final Round of Brush Collection Begins Monday, October 1

September 19, 2018 2:11 PM

The Streets Division will begin the final guaranteed round of brush collection on Monday, October 1.

Residents who wish to utilize the curbside brush collection service this year should have their brush to the curb prior to October 1. 

Placing brush to the curb after October 1 risks the brush not being collected until regular brush collection operations begin again in the spring of 2019.

After the round of brush collection that begins on October 1 concludes, brush collection will end for 2018 and the brush crews will be reassigned to yard waste collection and other duties.

When placing brush out for collection, residents should be sure the brush has the cut ends all facing the same direction and piles should be four feet away from obstructions like fire hydrants and street signs. Also brush piles should be kept separate from yard waste piles. Brush collection and yard waste collection are different operations. Piles of brush and yard waste mixed together will not be picked up.

Residents who wish to minimize the length of time it sits at the curb should use the Pickup Schedule map on the Streets Division's brush website, [www.cityofmadison.com/brushcollection]www.cityofmadison.com/brushcollection. 

Once on the Pickup Schedule map, Madison residents can enter their address in the upper left corner of the page. This will zoom the map into their immediate neighborhood.

If the map for the neighborhood is shaded green for Pickup Pending, then crews will be around very soon to collect the brush, so residents must get brush to the curb at that time to take advantage of the collection opportunity. The map is updated at the end of each workday, so residents using the map should check it regularly to learn if they should place their brush to the curb.

In summary, in order for residents to receive their final brush collection opportunity for 2018 they should place brush to the curb prior to October 1 for pickup. Residents who wish to minimize the amount of time brush is out awaiting collection should use the Pickup Schedule map and place brush to the curb when the map shows their neighborhood shaded green for Pickup Pending.

Madison residents and taxpayers can also bring their brush to either of the brush drop-off sites.  Brush loads brought to the drop-off site may not exceed what will fit into the back of a standard pick-up or small trailer.  Loads that are too large will be denied use of the drop-off site and directed to use the brush processing center.  The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Ave on the east side.  The sites are open seven days a week from 8:30am to 4:30pm and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Contractors may not use these drop-off sites.

Contractors, as well as residents and other city taxpayers with large volumes of brush, can bring brush they cut to the brush processing center at 121 E. Olin Ave to be chipped for a per-ton fee. Additional information about the brush processing center, including hours of operation and fees, can be found on the brush section of the Streets Division website, www.cityofmadison.com/streets, or by contacting the center at 608-266-4911.

Additional information about brush collection, including a short video that explains brush collection operations, can be found on the Streets Division's brush website, www.cityofmadison.com/brushcollection.

Residents can also call the brush collection hotline at 608-267-2088 for curbside collection time estimates that are updated weekly, or call the Streets Division office that services their neighborhood.  Residents that live east of South Park Street, and that includes the isthmus, should call the east side Streets Division at 608-246-4532.  Residents that live west of South Park Street should call the west side Streets Division at 608-266-4681.
