During the fall months, leaves may be placed curbside for pickup. Usually, two leaf vacs (one on the hilltop and one downtown) run every day throughout the fall months and leaves will be picked up within a few days, although there is no set schedule. Any other time, leaves must be placed into a compost pile and treated as such. See the compost link on the left side of the page for more details about what can be included in these piles.
Furniture may be picked up once a week for residents that are currently paying for City of Madison Garbage pickup and each piece of furniture must have a City of Madison sticker located on it. The furniture must be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the day of pickup. Residents must call the Street Department in advance to request pickup. The sticker is $2.00. No appliances, carpeting, or construction materials will be picked up, even upon request.
