We have concluded leaf and yard waste collection for the season. The annual spring collection will begin on Monday March 31st.
Use the links below to access maps of each collection district. These maps will provide more detailed information on our location in the area we are currently working in. If we are no in your area, you will find our best estimate of when we plan to get to your refuse collection district.
How should I put my leaves and yard waste out for collection?
We prefer that you pile your leaves loose at the street edge. Keep leaves separate from brush and avoid piling them around or next too mail boxes, trees and utility poles. Do not put leaves in the street. When you put leaves in the streets they can be washed into our lakes where the nutrients contribute to algae growth. It is also against Madison Ordinance to place leaf piles in the street.
You may cover your leaf piles with tarps of plastic sheeting to prevent them from blowing around.
If you must bag your leaves, please leave the bags open at the top and use compostable paper leaf bags if possible. This will help us identify what is in the bags and will speed collection as all plastic bags must be emptied.
No, we are also collecting yard and garden waste. Yard waste is grass clippings, leaves, plant debris and twigs less than 18" long. You can also place your pumpkins with your leaves for collection. Just add your pumpkins to your leave pile and they will be composted.
