  • Please stow recyclables in bins, not on ground

    Milton Water Clerk Elma Sue Craig has requested on behalf of the Milton City Commission that all recyclable items be stowed inside the recycle trailer,  located at the Milton Municipal Building, rather than placed on the ground. If all of the bins labeled plastic are full, go ahead and place plastics in a bin marked for paper or something else rather than leave them outside. There have been numerous complaints of recyclables blowing across the highway and into the Dollar General lot because they were left outside a bin.
