Change in Waste Collection, October 1st

Date Posted: Saturday, September 19th, 2020

September 18, 2020


Every three years, the Town of Milton advertises to receive Request for Quotations relating to residential waste collection services to assure our citizens are given the best service at the most reasonable cost.  As a result of the bid for services, the quarterly waste collection fee will increase from $56.00 to $58.00.  Effective October 1, 2020, Waste Industries, a GFL Environmental Company, will be the Town of Milton’s residential waste, yard waste, bulk item, and recycle hauling contractor.

Beginning October 1st, Town-wide residential waste collection will occur weekly on Wednesday, followed by yard waste collection on alternating Thursdays, and recycle collection every other Thursday.  You will receive a Welcome Letter  (2020-09-10 Milton Collection Calendar and Welcome Letter) directly from Waste Industries which will include a collection schedule for the remaining months of 2020. Please follow the guidelines on the reverse side of the calendar for waste, yard waste, and recycle guidelines.  For the pickup of a bulk item (i.e. mattress, couch, grill etc.), contact Town Hall to schedule the collection.

As of October 1st, discard the current waste collection calendar.

During the week of September 21st, Waste Industries will be delivering new waste and recycle toters.  If by the morning of Tuesday, September 29th, new toters have not been received, contact Town Hall for delivery.

In closing, continue to use the Charlie’s Waste (Blue Hen) waste and recycle toters through September 29th, and on that date leave both the waste and recycle toters alongside the curb or driveway so Charlie’s Waste Services can collect their toters.


Should you have any questions during this process, don’t hesitate to contact Town Hall at 302-684-4110.

Best regards,
