Trash, recycling, and large item collections by the Streets Division will begin at 6:00am on Thursday, February 4, 2021.

You must have your carts and items out for pickup before 6:00am. Items set out after 6:00am may not be picked up.

When you set your collection carts and/or large items out, do not place them in the street. Use your driveway apron or a cleared area of your terrace if possible. Items and collection carts in the street gutter become obstructions for snow plowing equipment.

Streets Division crews are starting collections early due to the timing and severity of snowstorm that is forecast to hit Madison.
