Online pre-registration is now available for Milton’s second household paint and chemical collection event, to be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 (with a snow date March 1) at Bell Memorial Park thanks to Milton Grows Green.

To register online, click here. Please be as specific as possible when estimating weight to be dropped off.

Online registration and the printed confirmation is required to bring materials to the event. There is no charge to Milton residents. However, due to budget restraints, registration may close early once the maximum amount of material is registered.

Milton residents only (no businesses) may drop off:

•Latex and oil-based paints (in original containers; quantities limited) •Lawn and garden chemicals •Cleaning products •Fluorescent bulbs •Batteries “We are planning to serve as many residents as possible, but we have a limited budget and can only collect as much as funding allows,” said Cindy Eade, environmental sustainability coordinator for the City of Milton. “Therefore, registration will be first-come, first served.

“The online registration process helps us stay within budget and ensures we serve the most residents.”
