Town of Milton to Conduct Inflow Investigations
In order to improve sewer service, on behalf of the Town of Milton, Weston & Sampson will be conducting inflow investigations
in selected portions of the sanitary sewer system. The inspections are being conducted as part of Milton’s 2015 Inflow Investigation Program.  

The purpose of inflow inspections is to locate sources of rainwater entering the sanitary sewer, such as roof leaders, yard and driveway drains,
and sump pumps that are improperly connected to the sewer system. By redirecting these sources, the Town of Milton will reduce
the amount of wastewater it sends to the MWRA’s Deer Island Treatment Facility.

Inflow inspections will be conducted by the town’s wastewater consultants, Weston & Sampson, in a “door-to-door” fashion from
November 12th through December 18th, 2015, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Inspections at each home will
last about  10-15 minutes and will be performed by a two-person team.  The team will evaluate the basement or equivalent lowest level of each
building to determine if any of the common sources of inflow may be connected to the sewer system.  The exterior of each building will also be
checked for potential inflow sources.  

For your convenience inflow inspections may be scheduled in advance by calling (857) 598-4372.
All persons performing inflow inspections will carry proper photo identification.

The Town of Milton is asking every homeowner to help by taking part in the Inflow Investigation Program.  

If you have any questions or would like to set up an inspection appointment, please call our wastewater consultant, Weston & Sampson at (857) 598-4372.  

we apologize for any inconvenience!

*** Recycling Policy for Plastic Bags ***


As a result of recent solid waste internal audit activities, it was found that very many households in Milton have been avoiding the use of trash stickers.
Concealing household trash and trying to pass it off as recycling materials is dishonest.

Solid Waste rules, which are published, available on line, and on the calendar which is mailed to every single residence in town.
Clearly noted under “Single Stream Recycling” is “NO PLASTIC BAGS”.
Effective last week our solid waste vendor was directed to comply with our regulations and was notified as follows:

…Milton does not allow recycling to be put out in plastic bags and require that recycling be clearly exposed in single stream barrels or recycling bins.
Milton’s Regulations are built upon the premise that any bagged material has an unknown content and therefore likely contaminated and non-recyclable.
Any material put out in plastic bags WILL BE LEFT BY THE RECYCLING TRUCKS and, if not properly stickered, WILL BE REJECTED BY THE MSW TRUCKS!

Under the terms of our contract our solid waste vendor will not return to collect any non-compliant stop. Non-compliant folks need to wait until next week’s collection.
