Drop off sites also closed on Memorial Day

There will be no refuse or recycling collection on Monday, May 30 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.  The yard waste drop off sites will also be closed. 
Madison residents who normally have their refuse and recycling collected on Mondays should instead place their carts to the curb for collection by 7am on Tuesday, May 31.  Only residents within the Monday district will have their collection of refuse and recycling delayed due to the holiday.  
Refuse and recycling for the Tuesday district will also be collected on May 31. 
Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on May 31, it is imperative that residents in these areas place their carts curbside prior to 7am on that day.  Carts set out late may not be able to be collected by our crews until the next scheduled collection day. 
Also, since Streets Division crews will be diverted from their normal tasks in order to collect refuse and recycling from the Monday and Tuesday districts on May 31, other services, such as brush and large item collection, may be temporarily delayed. 
The City of Madison drop off sites will be open the following hours:
May 28, Saturday                    8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
May 29, Sunday                      8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
May 30, Monday                     Closed
May 31, Tuesday                     8:30am until 8:00pm
The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Av. on the east side.  The yard waste only site at 402 South Point Rd will also be open as noted above.
Information about all of the Streets Division’s recycling and solid waste services is available at our web site.
