[ARCHIVED] City of Milton Announces Scrap Metal Drive to Benefit the New Crossridge Park Playground

The City of Milton, in celebrating Earth Day, will be conducting a scrap metal drive Monday, April 21, 2014, through May 3, 2014. Proceeds from the scrap metal drive will go toward the construction of the new Crossridge Park Playground. In addition to raising money for the Crossridge Park Playground, the scrap metal drive will also aid in the reduction of mosquito and rodent areas. Collection of these items also reduces unwanted infiltration into the groundwater and adds to the improved look of the neighborhoods by removing items from backyards and other areas of the properties that have outgrown their use.

Please call the Department of Public Works at (608) 868-6914 if you have an item that you would like to donate to the scrap metal drive. Examples of acceptable items include appliances, (refrigerators, air conditions, stoves, etc.), metal siding, metal fence posts, tire rims, cans, scrap metal, tin, pipes, metal tools, wire, Christmas lights, old wires, motors, engines, metal doors or windows, metal fences, light fixtures, and much more. Almost all metal items are collectable. Residents may also take old oil to the City’s Oil Recycle Site located at 620 W. Madison Avenue behind the Fire Station.

Staff will be available to pick up items at business and residential properties or items can also be dropped off at the Public Works Facility, 150 Northside Drive, during this recycling drive Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. If an owner requests it, the Public Works Department can go into backyards, garages, etc. to collect items that are accessible. If residents are dropping off items on weekends, please call (608) 868-6914 to make an appointment.

The Parks & Recreation Commission will be building the new Crossridge Park Playground on August 23, 2014 and needs volunteers to help complete the project. If you are interested in helping on build day, RSVP online at or contact Assistant to the City Administrator Inga Cushman by email at or call (608) 868-6900.

If you have any questions, please contact City Administrator Jerry Schuetz at (608) 868-6900 or by e-mail at
