There will be no refuse or recycling collection on Monday, January 15 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday.  The drop-off sites will also be closed on January 15. 

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 16.  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 16. 

Since the Streets Division will be collecting refuse and recycling from both the Monday and Tuesday districts on January 16, it is imperative that residents in these areas place their carts curbside prior to 7am on that day.  Due to the additional work load, Streets Division crews may not be able to collect carts set out late, and those residents who have set their carts out late may have to wait until their next scheduled collection day for pick up. 

Also, since Streets Division crews will be diverted from their normal tasks in order to collect refuse and recycling from the Monday and Tuesday districts on January 16, 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 15. The drop-off sites will reopen for winter hours on 7:30am on January 16.  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
