Milton's trash and recycling 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 2022 - June 2023.

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