Archived News: This news release is more than one year old and may include outdated information.

There will be no refuse or recycling collection on Monday, December 26 in observance of the Christmas holiday.  The drop off sites will also be closed on December 26. 
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, December 27.  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 December 27. 
Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on December 27, it is imperative that residents in these areas place their carts curbside prior to 7am on that day.  Due to the additional work load, Streets Division crews may not be able to collect carts set out late, and those residents who have set their carts out late may have to wait until their next scheduled collection day for pick up. 
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 December 27, other services, such as large item collection, may be temporarily delayed. 
The City of Madison drop off sites will be open the following hours:
December 26, Monday               Closed
December 27, Tuesday              7:30am until 3:00pm
December 28, Wednesday         7:30am until 3:00pm
December 29, Thursday             7:30am until 3:00pm
December 30, Friday                  7:30am until 3:00pm
The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Av. on the east side.
