Streets Division Updates

  • In observance of the Juneteenth holiday, the Streets Division will be closed on Monday, June 19.  This means no trash & recycling collection and the drop-off sites will be closed as well.
  • The drop-off site at 1501 W. Badger Rd is permanently closed.  The resident services office remains open at Badger, but the drop-off site is gone.  For more details about which sites are open and their hours, go to www.cityofmadison.com/DropOffSites
  • Badger Road has been closed for over a year now, and we’re still seeing a lot of people show up looking to drop off items.  If you could please help spread the work to your friends and neighbors, it would be appreciated – especially by your friends and neighbors who you could save a unnecessary trip to the Badger Rd site.
  • Food scraps drop-off continues at the Eastside and South Madison farmers’ markets on Tuesday evenings.  We are over 2,000 pounds of food scraps collected for the year already!  Check out what you can bring to our sites and more details at www.cityofmadison.com/FoodScraps.
  • On June 24 there will be a free electronics recycling event at Warner Park from 8:00am to 1:00pm.  This is not a City event.  Since it is not an official City event, you do not need to be a City resident to participate. This free electronics recycling event is being put on by Universal Recycling Technologies, Samsung, and the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.  More details about the event can be found on URT’s website here or by calling 1-877-278-0799.
  • Curious about the City’s electronics recycling?  Go to www.cityofmadison.com/eCycle.  All electronics, including televisions & computers, are accepted without a charge in 2023 at the drop-off sites.  You just need to be a city resident, and the electronics have to come from your home.  We cannot accept material from businesses.
