Guaranteed collection will resume in 2021.

Streets Division crews have completed the final round of guaranteed brush collection for the year of 2020.

Residents should not place brush out for pickup again for this year.

Streets Division crews will resume brush collection in 2021. The official start date for brush pickup in 2021 will be announced when that date is known.

Brush Collection Details for 2020
The final brush collection round for this year began on September 21.

All Madison residents received their final collection opportunity sometime between September 21 and October 8.

If you set out brush after September 21, and it remains on the terrace, then you likely set the brush out too late for curbside pickup. Since collection is not guaranteed to occur again this year, residents should take brush to a drop-off site.
