Collections resume on May 29

There will be no recycling, refuse, brush, or large item collections on Monday, May 28th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The 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 pickup by 7am on Tuesday, May 29.

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 29.

Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on May 29, it is imperative that residents in these areas place their carts curbside prior to 7am on that day. Setting out collection carts after 7am may result in missing the opportunity to have them collected. Those who set out the carts late would need to wait until the next scheduled collection day.

And 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 29, 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 26, Saturday -  8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • May 27, Sunday  - 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • May 28, Monday - Closed
  • May 29, 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.
