No, Monona does not follow alternate-side parking rules in the winter. Per Monona ordinance §434-13, if the Mayor or their designee declares a snow emergency, parking is prohibited on any City of Monona street for the entire duration of the snow emergency. During declared snow emergencies, the parking lots at Ahuska, Lottes, Winnequah, Frost Woods Beach, Fireman's, Maywood and Schluter Parks offer free parking for up to 48 consecutive hours while snow is being cleared from City streets.
Collection of large trash items (for example: furniture, mattresses, appliances, computers, etc.) can be arranged on an individual basis by calling any trash provider of your choice. The city’s contracted provider for weekly trash and recycling pick-up is Waste Management (1-888-960-0008). Waste Management picks up large items on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month.
There is a separate charge for collection of these items. Residents will be billed directly by the provider. View a list of estimated charges per item from Waste Management.
In addition, the Dane County Landfill, located at 7102 U.S. Hwy 12 (beltline east toward Cambridge, across from the Yahara Hills Golf Course) is also available for disposal of large items.

Seasonal launch permits are valid at all Dane County, City of Madison, and City of Monona launch sites, but permits purchased in Monona help to fund improvements to the launches in Monona, including new docks and dredging of landing areas.
