REMINDER: Final Yard Waste Round Starts May 14
Thursday, May 10, 2018 - 4:12pm
The Streets Division will perform one more curbside yard waste collection round. Every resident in Madison will have one final opportunity to have yard waste collected from the curb this spring.
The final round will begin on Monday, May 14.
On May 14, crews will begin collecting yard waste from the area of the city that receives Monday refuse collection. After each street within that district receives their final collection opportunity, collection crews will rotate into the Tuesday district and provide each street with their final collection opportunity. The Tuesday district will be followed by the Wednesday district and then concluding with the Thursday and Friday districts.
The spring collection period will end when the Friday collection districts receives their final curbside yard waste collection opportunity. Curbside yard waste pickup will not be performed again this year until the start of the autumn leaf collection season.
Before placing yard waste to the curb for pickup, go to www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste and click the Pickup Schedule button.
If your neighborhood is marked “Pickup Pending” on the map, place your yard waste out for collection as soon as possible because crews will be around soon.
If your neighborhood is marked “Crews Working,” it may be too late to take advantage of the collection round as crews may have already serviced your neighborhood, so residents should instead take the yard waste to a drop-off site.
If your neighborhood is marked “Season Over,” do not place yard waste to the curb, and instead take it to a drop-off site.
Be sure to check the pickup schedule on the website regularly so this final chance for curbside pickup is not missed. The map is updated daily when crews are deployed.
The drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side, 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side, and 402 South Point Rd. on the far west side. Please note that the South Point Rd. site only accepts yard waste. All three sites are open 8:30am to 4:30pm seven days a week, and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These hours will remain in effect until Sunday, December 2.
