Milton Scene Reminder: It’s a yard waste pickup week – Oct. 23 – 27, 2023
From the Milton Department of Public Works.
Yard waste is picked up 17 weeks a year on the same day as trash and recycle, following the schedule below. Label barrels “Yard Waste” or use paper leaf bags (no plastic bags). Branches may be bundled with natural fiber. Bundles, bags, and barrels must each be under 40 lb.
Use Milton’s Recycle Right App to view your curbside collection schedule and stay up to date on delays. Use our new Recycle Right Wizard tool and see how you can dispose of your items properly.
Milton’s trash and recycling are on a 5-day collection schedule. Remember, trash, recycling, and yard waste must be out by 7:00 a.m. for collection.
Trash: Most households have a town-owned 35-gallon trash cart. Trash placed in this cart does not require a sticker. The annual fee for a town-owned cart is $156.
$3 Pay-As-You-Throw stickers are required on trash in any other type of cart, barrel, or bag and on loose items. Additional carts are $156/year.
Recycling: Milton offers complimentary single stream recycling to residential households.
