MADISON, Wis. -The Madison Streets Division will be diverting crews to brush collection of the next several days following Monday night’s severe storms, according to a release.
There will be at least 28 crews doing brush collection in the next several days, officials said. Other crews will also be assigned to brush clean-up when they finish their regular assignments.
“We are committed to an all-out effort to get brush picked up from Madison residents who have suffered storm damage,” Streets Superintendent Chris Kelley said in the release. “We hope to we can assist our customers in a quick recovering from this event.”
The rule limiting the amount of brush that can be brought to drop off sites in Madison will also be rescinded, according to the release. Residents will be allowed to bring an unlimited amount of brush to the drop-off sites, instead of the usual limit of one pickup or trailer load per day.
“This change in rules will assist us by allowing folks who can haul their own brush to bring it in for proper disposal,” Kelley said. “However, this is a service for Madison residents who cut their own brush. Contractors may not use our drop off sites.”
Drop-off sites are at 1501 W. Badger Road and 4602 Sycamore Ave. They are open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday nights, the sites are open until 8 p.m.
Officials will be evaluating what needs to be done about homes and buildings damaged by the storm over the next couple of days, according to the release. If additional collection is needed, a decision will be made in the next 48 hours.
