Archived News: This news release is more than one year old and may include outdated information.

There will be no recycling, trash, brush, or large item collections performed by the City of Madison Streets Division on Monday, May 30, 2021 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 scheduled cart(s) to the curb for pickup by 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31.

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 6:30 a.m. on May 31.

Residents who set out carts after 6:30 am may miss their scheduled collection and will need to wait until the next scheduled pickup day to have their carts emptied.

Drop-off Sites
The Streets Division drop-off sites will be closed on Monday, May 30, 2021 as well. They will reopen during their posted hours on Tuesday, May 31.

Drop-off site locations and hours are different this year.

Check the Streets Division website to learn the locations, their operations hours, and the material they accept.

Large Item Collection
Due to the holiday, the number of large item work orders that can be accepted during the week of Memorial Day has been reduced.

This was done because there are fewer days to collect large items during this week, and large item collection staffing will be limited the day following the holiday as crews must be reassigned from that duty to help with trash and recycling cart collection.
