To All Milton Residents,

This year July 4th falls on a Saturday, but the actual day off for most folks is on Friday July 3rd. Since we do not collect solid waste on Fridays,
there will be NO DELAYS with collections the following week.


PLEASE REMEMBER:

The Town of Milton has now adopted a new 2 day Collection Schedule for Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste. The new schedule has collections only on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the week.
Please be advised that the new collection schedule will no longer have delays due to holidays occurring on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday, (we are not collecting on those days).
If a holiday occurs on a Monday, Tuesday or Friday there will be regular collections for that week on Wednesday and Thursday.

If a Holiday occurs on a Thursday all collections will occur on Wednesday the day before the holiday.
If a Holiday occurs on a Wednesday all collections will occur on Thursday the day after the holiday.

 
Thank you,
Milton Department of Public Works
629 Randolph Avenue
Milton MA 02186

*** Recycling Policy for Plastic Bags ***

A MESSAGE FROM MILTON DPW

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.
