Yard Waste Collection Happening Nov. 9 & Nov. 10
Friday, November 8, 2019 - 7:58am
Check the Pickup Schedule Map to Learn if Your Neighborhood Will be Collected
The Streets Division will be collecting leaves and yard waste on Saturday, November 9, 2019 and again on Sunday, November 10.
Yard waste collection crews will be working from 6:00am to 5:00pm both days.
While the Streets Division anticipates continuing leaf and yard waste collection beyond this weekend, the approaching winter season means collection may not last for much longer as crews will be needed for snow and ice duties.
Who Will Get Their Leaves Collected This Weekend
Residents should go to www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste and click on the Pickup Schedule map.
If your neighborhood is shaded green for “Pickup Pending,” these residents should place leaves and yard waste to the curb before 6:00am on Saturday to ensure collection for this round.
The areas marked “Pickup Pending” on the map today (Friday, Nov. 8, 2019) are likely to have their leaves collected on Saturday, November 9 or Sunday, November 10.
Weather conditions and equipment availability will affect how many neighborhoods are actually collected this weekend.
What Happens if Your Yard Waste Is Not Collected This Weekend
The Streets Division intends to continue yard waste collection beyond this weekend.
However, residents who are not likely to have their leaves and yard waste collected this weekend are encouraged to use the drop-off sites rather than placing the material to the curb.
As winter approaches, collection crews may be suddenly reassigned to snow and ice duties in order to respond to the weather, and be unable to return to yard waste collection until the spring of 2020.
The Streets Division drop-off sites are open seven days week 8:30am until 4:30pm and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These hours will remain in effect until Sunday, December 8.
For additional information about yard waste and the drop-off sites, go to www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste.
