Drop-off sites will also be closed

There will be no refuse or recycling collection on Monday, January 21 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday. The drop-off sites will also be closed.

Madison residents who normally have their refuse and recycling collected on Mondays should instead place their carts to the curb for collection by 7am on Tuesday, January 22. Only residents within the Monday district will have their collection of refuse and recycling delayed due to the holiday.

Refuse and recycling for the Tuesday district will also be collected on January 22.

Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on January 22, it is essential that residents in these areas place their carts out for pickup prior to 7am. Due to the additional workload, Streets Division crews may not be able to go back to collect carts set out after 7am. Late carts may have to wait until their next scheduled collection day for pick up.

In order to collect refuse and recycling from the Monday and Tuesday districts on January 22, Streets Division crews will be diverted from their normal tasks. Due to this, other services, such as large item and Christmas tree collection, may be temporarily delayed.

The City of Madison drop-off sites will also be closed on January 21. The drop-off sites will reopen for winter hours at 7:30am on January 22. The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and 4602 Sycamore Av. on the east side.

Information about all of the Streets Division’s recycling and solid waste services, including additional information on drop-off site hours, is available at our web site
