 The City of Madison will begin the annual Spring Leaf Collection on Monday April 2nd. Each neighborhood will receive a minimum of two collections. The spring collection is scheduled to run through Friday April 27th.

There will be no fixed schedule for leaf collection. Streets Division crews will begin collecting leaves in Monday's refuse collection districts. After completing collection in Monday's areas, crews will move into Tuesday's districts, then Wednesday's districts, followed by the Thursday and then Friday refuse districts. Upon completion of Friday's refuse districts, crews will begin the cycle again in Monday's districts. 

It is difficult to predict when leaf collection crews will be in a given area due to the uncertainty of workloads. The Streets Division has several options you can use to get the latest information on where our crews are working and when we hope to get to a given area.

You can get our best information by calling 267-2088. This number will provide you with a recorded announcement 24 hours a day. You can get the latest leaf collection update as well as information on brush collection and the yard waste drop off sites.
