*** New Yard Waste Collection Schedule ***
Starting July 1, 2014
The new Yard Waste Collection Schedule begins
July 1, 2014 until June 30, 2015
Yard waste is picked up curbside at no charge to residents during 15 designated yard waste collection weeks. During these weeks, have your yard waste out on the curb by 7 a.m. on your regular trash & recycling pickup day. The new yard waste schedule will be sent to residents in mid-June, 2008. (Remember: drivers will not go on private property to pick up leaf bags.)
The Milton DPW asked residents to follow the following yard waste pickup guidelines to ensure prompt
and efficient yard waste pickup:
Yard waste may be in paper leaf bags or in barrels marked “yard waste”;
Yard waste in plastic bags will be rejected.
Bags or barrels must weight 40 lbs. or less; anything heavier will not be picked up.
Branches must be cut to 3 ft. or less and tied in a bundle for pickup. Each bundle must weigh 40 lbs. or less;
Please do not mix yard waste with trash/recycling: it will be rejected!
Remember: rocks, mulch, and dirt are not yard waste. Your waste waste will not be picked up if it contains these items.
