There will be no trash or recycling collection by the Streets Division on Monday, January 17, 2022 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 18.

Trash and recycling pickup for residents with a Tuesday collection day will also occur on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

Residents must have their scheduled  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.

When placing carts out for pickup, you should not place them in the street. 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 slowed as crews need to be diverted from their regular duties in order to assist collecting trash and recycling.

Drop-off Sites
The City of Madison drop-off sites will also be closed on Monday, January 17, 2022.

The drop-off sites will reopen for winter hours at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 18.

The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side.  More information about the drop-off sites can be found at
