All the trash haulers certified in the City of Milton are required by ordinance to offer residents a curbside recycling program at no additional cost. Standard items collected include paper of all types, cardboard, aluminum drink cans and plastic bottles. Check with your hauler about specific materials and containers. Most haulers now are offering 65-gallon recycling carts instead of the 18-gallon standard bins.
