Canton Avenue Closures Notice

Canton Avenue will be closed to through traffic.  
Access will be maintained at all times for residents, school busses, trash trucks and deliveries from at least one end of the detour.

*** 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.



Please be advised
due to our new
Wednesday and Thursday collection schedule
Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste

There will no longer be delays with collections
due to holidays.

If a holiday occurs on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday
there will be regular collections for that week

If a Holiday occurs on a Wednesday all collections will occur

Please remember that all missed collection calles

at (617) 361-8000
