Garbage & Recycling


A solid waste (garbage) dumpster for Town of Milton residents is located at Snapper's Towing, S2804 State Road 35, Fountain City, WI 54629.  All garbage msut be bagged and any bag is acceptable.

  • Hours of operation will be Saturdays, from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
  • At present, a fee of $1.00 per each bag deposited in the dumpster will be collected by Snapper's. Beginning June 1, 2013, the per bag fee will increase to $3.00 per bag.  You must be able to lift the bag into the dumpster.


Effective January 1, 2012, Town of Milton residents will be able to take their recyclables to any recycling site which is a part of the Buffalo County Recycling Program, including a new site at Snapper's Towing.  THE FOUNTAIN CITY SITE IS NO LONGER A PART OF THE BUFFALO COUNTY RECYCLING PROGRAM, SO TOWN OF MILTON RESIDENTS SHOULD NOT TAKE THEIR RECYCLABLES TO THE FOUNTAIN CITY SITE.  There is no charge to deposit normal recyclable materials, and these will be accepted at Snapper's.  There are charges for disposal of appliances and other large items, and those items will not be accepted at Snapper's (please see the Buffalo County website for information on the costs and locations for disposing of those materiasls).  The Town of Milton recycling site will be open at the same time as the garbage site (Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to noon).
