Drop-off sites will also be closed on Memorial Day

There will be no recycling, trash, brush, or large item collections performed by the City of Madison Streets Division on Monday, May 25, 2020 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Streets Division drop-off sites will also be closed.

Madison residents who normally have their trash and recycling collected on Mondays by the Streets Division should instead place their scheduled cart(s) to the curb for pickup by 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26.

Only residents that have a Monday collection day will experience a delay in refuse and recycling pickup services.

Residents that have their refuse and recycling collection scheduled for Tuesdays also should have their cart(s) to the curb by 6:30 a.m. on May 26.

Residents who set out carts after 6:30 a.m. may miss their scheduled collection and will need to wait until the next scheduled pickup day to have their carts emptied.

Streets Division crews will be diverted from their normal tasks in order to collect refuse and recycling from the Monday and Tuesday collection areas on May 26. Other services, such as brush and large item collection, may be temporarily delayed.

The Streets Division drop-off sites will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2020 as well. Sites will reopen on May 26, 2020 at 7:30am. The drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd., 4602 Sycamore Ave., and 402 South Point Rd. Check the Streets Division website to learn what items are accepted at these locations.

When the sites reopen, they will still follow the new restrictions that limit the operating hours and the number of residents who can unload their material at a single time. Please review those restrictions on the Streets Division website and plan accordingly. Many items, like brush and large items, can be collected from the curb rather than delivered to a site.
