Fall 2015 Leaf Collection

The town offers 3 ways for residents to dispose of their leaves:
  1. Leave containers at the Curb: Weekly curbside collection of yard waste in containers will start March 14, 2016 and continue until December 14, 2016. We encourage using containers for leaf collection as it is efficient, environmentally friendly and the best option for storm water management. Free leaf bags are available at various municipal offices for Madison residents.
  2. Bring to Municipal Garage: Residents can bring leaves to the Municipal Garage on weekdays from October 26 to December 4, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Note, this is weekdays only and no commercial dumping is allowed.
  3. Rake to Curb: Collection will start on October 26 and weather permitting will continue until early December. Please get your leaves to the curb as soon as possible. December 4 is the last day to put out your leaves.
In order to make curbside collection of leaves more efficient, place the leaves in the street. This allows our workforce to use front-end loaders for pickup when leaves are wet.
