After November 1st, your Milton address will receive the $6/pickup rate. Current subscriber rates will change to $6/pickup as well.
Compost is an easy way to reduce kitchen scraps, create natural fertilizer, and reduce methane emissions. You can compost at home, or have Black Earth or Bootstrap pick it up and bring back your bucket.
Here's some tips on composting at home. Remember, the DPW makes compost bins available to Milton Residents at wholesale prices. Residents can purchase an Earth Machines composter at the Treasurer's Office at Town Hall for $55. The composters will then be available for pickup at the Milton DPW Yard (629 Randolph Avenue) on the following Thursday.
