Recycle – Waste Management

A variety of earth friendly businesses accept hazardous waste within a close proximity to Milton, so don’t toss that waste into your trash!  Your actions matter.

Most waste can be recycled curbside on Wednesday and Thursdays, dropped of at Milton’s Department of Public Works (DPW) located at 629 Randolph Ave. the first Saturday of each month or at other nearby stores and recycling centers (locate via Earth 911 now).

Textiles (nice or worn, as long as they are clean) can be dropped off any time at any one of the white bins located in the parking lots at ALL Milton Public Schools (except Tucker – due to limited space).
