Beginning the week of December 3rd, street sweeping will begin on all curb and gutter streets in the City of Madison. Weather permitting; the street sweeping will be completed in 6 weeks. Due to the holidays, no work will be completed from December 24th – January 4th. We ask that residents refrain from parking on or placing any items in these streets between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Yard debris, trash receptacles and recycle bins should be placed behind the curb for your weekly pick-up. This is a one-time sweeping and the street sweeper will drive around any blockage within the street and will not return to sweep at a later date.
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. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Gina Romine at 256-772-5672 or by email at email@example.com.
