Connecticut towns are required to provide ways for residents to dispose of most common types of waste. Madison has no municipal trash pick-up so residents may either contract with commercial waste haulers for regular trash and recycling service or they may dispose of their own trash at authorized locations. (Commercial trash haulers do not pick up hazardous waste.)
The Town of Madison does not provide municipal refuse pick-up service, however, the Town shares the operational costs of the Guilford-Madison Transfer Station jointly with the Town of Guilford. The Guilford-Madison Transfer Station located at 1900 Boston Post Road in Guilford.
