Moving Days 2013
Posted August 9, 2013 at 4:02 PM

It is time for the annual downtown move out and there are a lot of things for movers and others to consider. Activity is expected to begin this weekend and peak on Wednesday, August 14 when most renters have to be out of their apartments.

Residents in the downtown area who have their refuse and recycling collected on Thursdays can put their carts at the curb starting Monday, August 12.  Crews from the Streets Division will be able to empty them so residents can use them again and again during the move out.  The refuse and recycling carts will be emptied every day and residents can continue to fill them up every day from August 12 through August 16.

In order to make the removal of trash easier for collection crews residents are asked to follow these simple guidelines:

  • Do not put trash in cardboard boxes.
  • Boxes must be flattened and placed in the green recycling carts or bundled for recycling.
  • Keep refuse and recycling separate when placed at the curb.  Do not pile trash or large items around the refuse or recycling carts.
  • Do not place trash in recycling carts.
  • Put all refuse at the curb in the tan refuse carts or trash bags.
  • No loose piles of trash/garbage.
  • Do not pile trash or recyclables on top of furniture or appliances.
  • Keep larger metal items separate from other material so that it can be recycled.
  • Most appliances, including microwaves, TV's, and computer monitors as well as mattresses and box springs require a fee.


New $10 Fee for Mattress and Box Spring Recycling
The Streets Division is now recycling mattresses and box springs.  There is a $10 fee for each unit.  Stickers can be purchased at any Madison Public Library, the City Treasurer's Office in the City-County Building and at the Streets Division's offices.  Mattresses and box springs will not be collected without a fee sticker.

Donation Stations
The City of Madison has partnered with the UW-Madison Office of Sustainability, UW-Madison's We Conserve program, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and the REthink student organization to operate drop off donation centers downtown where movers can donate reusable items and food they no longer need.  A free electronics recycling program will be held at UW Parking Lot 51.

Many renters find that they have many usable items they no longer need such as clean clothing, functional household items, small furniture, unopened nonperishable food, and kitchen items. Usable goods will be accepted at the following locations during the hours listed:

U Haul Parking Lot
602 W. Washington Avenue

UW Parking Lot 51 (North Corner)
N. Mills and Spring Streets

  • Sunday, August 11, 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.

  • Tuesday, August 13, 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Free Computer and Electronics Recycling Drop Off
An e-waste recycling site will be set up in Lot 51 to accept electronics, working or not, including computers, monitors, TVs, phones, small appliances, and game systems, for recycling by the UW–Madison We Conserve program. THIS SERVICE IS ONLY OFFERED AT THE LOT 51 SITE ON THE DATES AND TIMES LISTED ABOVE.

University of Wisconsin Donate & Take Event
The We Conserve program is sponsoring a donate and take event on campus.  Movers can drop off items for reuse and search for materials they need.  No mattresses or box springs accepted.
