About appliance recycling

The City of Madison charges a fee to recycle many appliances.

This fee applies to appliances scheduled for pickup at the curb for collection or brought to the two City drop-off sites

Appliances are considered a large item.

For curbside collection, you must have submitted a work order and then have the item out for collection on the set-out day for your home.

If you are bringing the appliance to a drop-off site, you must complete the online work order system to order the fee sticker. It will be mailed to you after purchase. You must have the fee sticker attached to the item before it will be accepted.
