Street’s Department staff were up and plowing at 7:00 am this morning. All Madison streets will be plowed today, December 30, 2020. Here’s the plow update to share with your neighbors and on your neighborhood social media networks:
ANNUAL MADISON COMPOST BIN AND RAIN BARREL SALE RETURNS ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 10TH
After a one-year hiatus, the annual Madison compost and rain barrel sale is back at a new location. This year’s sale will be held at the Garver Feed Mill on Saturday, October 10th. The new location provides easy, contactless pick-up and experts will be on hand to answer questions.
When it comes to easy, cost-effective ways to lessen your impact on the planet, rain barrels and compost bins provide an eco one-two for your home! Harvesting rainwater for your plants saves money and reduces stormwater run-off into local waterways.
It is estimated that our urban communities contribute about 30% of the total phosphorus that enter in lakes Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, Kegonsa, and Wingra from runoff. And rather than sending more stuff to the landfill, compost bins will help you create nutrient rich soil by turning yard waste and food scraps into organic fuel for the garden.
Compost bins and 50 and 100 gallon rain barrels with diverters are available at discounted prices. Pre-orders before Oct 2nd receive an additional $10 off. Supplies are limited and due to COVID restrictions, pre-ordering is strongly recommended. For more information visit http://www.cityofmadison.com/streets/compost/CompostBinSale.cfm
