Household Garbage – Weekly Service

Madison provides weekly pickup of household garbage. Customers should roll the city-provided service cart to the curb the night before their assigned trash day.  To assure regular and efficient pick up, all residential garbage must be:

  • Bagged
  • Placed in a curbside service cart
  • Covered with the lid 

After Trash Pick-up: Be sure to roll the service cart off the right-of-way, preferably to an area of low visibility, as soon as possible.



Four weekdays (M, T, R, F) are allotted for normal garbage service.  Households are divided into four household garbage routes.

During a holiday week, garbage may run on an alternative schedule.
Check the Alert Center for notifications of route changes during holiday weeks. You can also use Notify Me to sign up for email or text reminders of these changes.

General Waste – Transfer Station
As county taxpayers, Madison residents may also use the Morgan County Transfer Station, 2480 Athens Highway, to dispose of solid waste. 

For additional information on hours, limitations, etc. see Morgan County Sanitation.
