Christmas tree collection also suspended

The Streets Division has suspended large item collection for Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in response to weather conditions. The ongoing Christmas tree collection operations will also be suspended today. Streets Division staff typically assigned to these tasks will be used for snow-related tasks.

Collections of large items and Christmas trees should resume Wednesday, February 13, 2019.

The Streets Division asks that residents who have not yet placed large items to the curb for their regularly scheduled Tuesday collection wait to place them out for pickup on Wednesday, February 13. Residents with a Wednesday large item collection can also place those items to the curb for pickup on February 13.

Residents who have positioned large items to the curb in advance of today’s scheduled collection can leave them in place. However, items buried in snow or frozen to the curb cannot be picked up by collection crews when the services resume. If you elect to leave your large items in place, be sure they are accessible.

Christmas tree collection is also suspended due to the weather. Personnel typically used on this service will be reassigned to snow-related duties. Christmas trees already placed to the curb can be left in place until collection resumes later this week. Trees buried by snow or frozen to the curb cannot be collected. Residents who have not yet placed Christmas trees to the curb should elect to bring them to a drop-off site as some areas of Madison have already received their second and final collection opportunity.
