Drop off sites also closed on Independence Day

There will be no refuse, recycling, brush, or large item collection on Monday, July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday.  The yard waste drop off sites will also be closed on Monday. 
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, July 5.  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 July 5. 
Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on July 5, 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 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 July 5, 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:
July 2, Saturday                       8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
July 3, Sunday                         8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
July 4, Monday                        Closed
July 5, Tuesday                       8:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
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, or by contacting our offices.  East side residents, which are residents east of S. Park Street, including the isthmus, should call 246-4532. West side residents, which are residents west of S. Park Street, should call 266-4681.
