2024 Street Sweeping Program

Beginning the week of January 8th, street sweeping will begin on all curb and gutter streets in the City of Madison.  Sweeping will begin in the southwest quadrant of the city and move west. Weather permitting; the street sweeping will be completed in approximately 6 weeks.  We ask that residents refrain from parking on or placing any items in the streets between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  

Yard debris, trash receptacles and recycling carts should be placed directly behind the curb for your weekly pick-up. This is a one-time annual sweep, and the street sweeper will drive around any blockage within the street and will not return to sweep at a later date. The city also requests that you do not intentionally blow leaves from your property into the streets. The sweeping equipment will be able to pick up regular quantities of debris, however; if leaves are intentionally blown into the street from yards, it may cause damage to the equipment as well as slow down the sweeping operation.

The street sweeping program is aimed at improving the quality of storm water runoff by removing contaminants from the street before they can enter the storm system. The City of Madison would like to remind citizens to keep leaves, grass clippings, trash and fertilizers away from ditches, gutters or storm drains. Never dump motor oil, chemicals, pet waste, dirty or soapy water, or any other contaminant into the storm drainage system.
