Curbside collection will resume in the spring of 2019

Curbside leaf and yard waste collection for the 2018 fall period has officially ended. All areas of Madison have received their final official opportunity for curbside leaf and yard waste collection.

City of Madison residents who still have yard waste for disposal should take the material to one of the Streets Division drop-off sites.

Residents should not place yard waste and leaves to the terrace or road edge for collection again until the start of the spring collection rounds in 2019. The exact start date is weather dependent and will be announced when that date is known.

Streets Division drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side.

While the weather is still relatively snow-free at present, the Streets Division can no longer guarantee that every Madison resident will receive an additional curbside collection before a winter event occurs. Since the Streets Division does not want residents stuck with piles of yard waste buried under snow or frozen to the terrace, the official curbside collection period has ended until the start of the regular spring collection window in 2019.
