All garbage must be placed in containers or bags. Weight of a container and its contents shall not exceed seventy five (75) pounds. You must have your garbage and recycle out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. sharp. This is very important, because of possible changes with Waste Management’s schedules, which could result in them being at your house much earlier than the previous collection day. Yard waste must be located next to the trash can.
Under the Garbage Collection & Recycling Program, the city’s waste management contractor is responsible for removing all yard waste that meets specific criteria concerning weight, length and packaging. Yard waste such as leaves, trimmings and pine straw must be placed in bags and tied. These bags cannot weigh more than seventy five (75) lbs. Tree trimmings and branches must be cut to lengths of no longer than six (6) feet and be no greater than ten (10) inches in diameter and be less than seventy five (75) lbs. in weight. Yard waste and tree trimmings must be placed directly on the curb, where you place your trash can. When a homeowner hires a professional landscaper or tree service, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to have the company employed haul off all debris to a certified landfill. If a homeowner performs yard work and is unable to properly prepare their yard waste for pick up by the waste management contractor, the City of Madison provides one chipper truck and one knuckle boom truck to assist. For limb pick up only, the city is divided into two (2) Areas (East & West) with I-55 dividing the city. The chipper truck and knuckle boom truck will spend one (1) week in each area, alternating from the east to the west. To assist in picking up your debris, please contact Madison Public Works at (601) 856-8958 where a reference list will be compiled.
New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, these holidays will not be rescheduled. If one of your collection days falls on one of these holidays, your garbage and/or recycle will be collected on your next scheduled collection day.
