New 2 Day Collection Information

We ask that you please be patient and understand that this is a new schedule that is being implented.
Some scheduling difficulties are expected, just growing pains.
We trust that you will find it an improvement over the old schedule once it is in place.
One main difference you may enjoy is the reduction of delays due to holidays falling on a Monday!

We apologize for any inconvenience, and ask that you please be patient.

The DPW is once again making compost bins available to Milton Residents at wholesale prices.  Residents can purchase an Earth Machines composter for $42 at the Central Business Office at Town Hall.  The composters will then be available for pickup at the Milton DPW Yard (629 Randolph Avenue) on the following Thursday.  It's that easy!


As of April 1, 2008, Town Hall offices no longer accept cash payments for goods and services. This include fees for recycling bins and also materials accepted at the DPW Yard such as waste oil, antifreeze, car batteries, and tires.  Residents may still use personal checks.   For more information, call the Treasurer's Office at (617) 898-4850.
