New Carts to be Delievered 12/12 through 12/23

Carts for the City of Milton ready to be delivered
The City of Milton will be switching to Johns Disposal for refuse and recycling service in January 2012.  Both services will be automated, which means residents will receive two carts - one for recycling and one for refuse.

The new carts from Johns Disposal will be delivered between Monday, December 12th and Friday, December 23rd.  All of the carts delivered will be 96-gallon containers.  If residents find that they want a smaller size after using the carts through January, residents can contact Johns Disposal to switch to a smaller, 48-gallon container for refuse or recycling.  Sample bins are available to view on the landing before coming into the door to City Hall on the second floor.  The bins are viewable any time the Shaw Municipal Building is open, during regular City Hall and Library hours.

Attached to the carts will be clear plastic bags with collection information and the schedule for 2012.  The only major schedule change is that bulky trash collection will be on the third collection day of the month starting in January.  One new service for Milton residents is the collection of electronics (televisions, computers, etc.) on bulky trash days. 

The old recycling carts from Waste Management should be collected on the last recycling collection day of the year (December 21st for Green and December 28th for Yellow).
