There will be no trash or recycling collection by the Streets Division on Monday, January 18, 2021 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday. The drop-off sites will also be closed.

Curbside Collection Information
Madison residents who normally have their trash and recycling collected on Mondays should instead place their carts out for collection by 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 19.

Refuse and recycling for residents that have a Tuesday collection day will also be collected on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

Residents must have their scheduled collection carts out and ready for pickup prior to 6:30 a.m. Carts set out late may not be collected until the next scheduled collection. As a reminder, residents should avoid placing carts in the street because they become obstructions for snowplowing operations and vehicle traffic.

Other Streets Division services, such as large item pickup and Christmas tree collection, may be temporarily delayed as crews need to be diverted from their regular duties in order to assist collecting refuse and recycling.

Drop-off Sites
The City of Madison drop-off sites will also be closed on January 18, 2021.

The drop-off sites will reopen for winter hours at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 19.

The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side.
