Residents with a Monday refuse/recycling day should place their carts out for pickup on Tuesday, May 28

There will be no recycling, trash, brush, or large item collections performed by the City of Madison Streets Division on Monday, May 27, 2019 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Streets Division drop-off sites will also be closed.

Madison residents who normally have their trash and recycling collected on Mondays by the Streets Division should instead place their cart(s) to the curb for pickup by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28.

Only residents that have a Monday collection day will experience a delay in refuse and recycling pickup services.

Residents that have their refuse and recycling collection scheduled for Tuesdays also should have their cart(s) to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on May 28.

Residents that have a Monday and Tuesday refuse and recycling day must have their cart(s) to the curb and ready for pickup by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28. Setting out collection carts after 7:00 a.m. may result in missing the opportunity to have them emptied. Residents who set out carts after the collection trucks have serviced a neighborhood will need to wait until the next scheduled pickup day.

Streets Division crews will be diverted from their normal tasks in order to collect refuse and recycling from the Monday and Tuesday collection areas on May 28. This means 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 25, Saturday - 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • May 26, Sunday - 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  • May 27, Monday - Closed
  • May 28, Tuesday - 8:30am until 8:00pm

The drop-off 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.
