Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste

Milton's trash and recycle are on a 5-day collection schedule: see collection days by street. Remember, trash, recycling, and yard waste must be out by 7 am for collection. We've posted the new yardwaste calendar for July 2020 - June 2021.

Read our curbside collection guidelines and everything you need to know about carts (including opt out and discount forms, which were previously one trash fee abatement form).

Answers to most questions about trash, recycling, yard waste, the Recycling Center, and mattress pickup can be found on this website. 

Households may apply for a senior discounted rate (65+, $94/year) by printing and mailing in this application by July 31, 2020. Note: Residents who were previously approved need not reapply for Fiscal Year 2021 (Jul. 1, 2020 - Jun. 30 , 2021).
