Monday, November 28, 2016 - 10:48am
Winter hours remain in effect until March 24, 2017
The Streets Division drop-off sites are changing to winter hours starting Monday, December 5.
Starting December 5, the drop-off sites located at 4602 Sycamore Ave. and 1501 W. Badger Rd. will be open Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 3:00pm . These hours will remain in effect until March 24, 2017.
The yard waste only drop-off site at 402 South Point Rd. will close for the season at 4:30pm on Sunday, December 4. The South Point Rd. site will reopen at 8:30am on March 25, 2017.
The drop-off sites change their hours the first weekend of December each year since they are staffed with seasonal employees whose term of employment ends at this time.
While the Streets Division will continue collecting leaves from the curb as long as weather permits, residents electing not to compost their leaves at home may want to consider taking advantage of the final week of expanded hours and bring their yard waste to a drop-off site.
All three drop-off sites will be open at the below hours prior to the winter hours taking effect:
Monday, November 28 8:30am – 4:30pm
Tuesday, November 29 8:30am – 8:00pm
Wednesday, November 30 8:30am – 4:30pm
Thursday, December 1 8:30am – 8:00pm
Friday, December 2 8:30am – 4:30pm
Saturday, December 3 8:30am – 4:30pm
Sunday, December 4 8:30am – 4:30pm
While the hours will be more restrictive starting on December 5, the self-help drop-off sites at 1501 W. Badger Rd. and 4602 Sycamore Ave. will be open Monday to Friday 7:30am to 3:00pm through the winter to accept city of Madison residents’ yard waste, electronics, overflow cardboard, Styrofoam, rigid plastics, and other drop-off site materials.
