Madison city crews have completed their second pass through the city picking up residents’ flood debris and appliances.  Public Works Commissioner Kelly Johnson told Madison City Commissioners during their meeting Monday that anyone who still has items that may have been missed or that they are still getting out of their homes should contact the city’s Public Works Office.  He said that any flood-damaged appliances the city will pick up to dispose of need to be empty in order to be collected.

Johnson also said last night that the city’s Restricted Use site will continue to be open its extended hours through Saturday, October 5th.  Those hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 until noon, and from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m., and also Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Regular hours at the Restricted Use site will start again on Monday, October 7th.  Johnson said the site remains open to city and county residents to dispose of their flood damaged debris for free through October 12th. After that date, a fee will be charged.  

Johnson said that residents needing to dispose of any electronic items that were damaged in the flood can do so during the free electronics drop off scheduled for October 19th in Madison.  He also said that anyone with waste items like paint cans will need to dispose of those at the Household Hazardous Waste site in Sioux Falls.
