Hi Stacy,

There are at least two private trash removal contractors who service Middleton. You can sign up with them to pick up trash weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. If you prefer to haul the trash yourself, Middleton does have a transfer station. You can buy a yearly permit at the town hall.

I actually wouldn't mind those options. I live in a city that has municipal waste collection. The cost on my utility bill is negligible, but I pay by living in a crowded area. If I could live in a more rural setting, I would be willing to hire a private waste removal service.

Stacy, that is correct the town of Middleton does not have local trash pick. There is a transfer station or you can contract your own refuse company.

I attached a link for your convenience.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the explanation. Coming from a city that has a standard trash pickup agreement, finding my own waste removal is hard. I'll probably just talk to my neighbors and go with the same option they're using. Now that I know to be looking, I'll start doing my research. http://www.binhireperth.net

Hi Stacy,

It is true. Mr. Burke is very dependable. Have recommended his service for many clients over the years, as they move in or as they are getting their home ready for sale. Have his contact info if you should need it.

On the other hand, many people actually enjoy stopping by to dump their "stuff" at the transfer station on River St. & maybe chat with others who are doing the same.
Some people like to poke through the gently used items at the swap shop as well.

Best Regards,

I would call the Middleton Town Hall.


Come to Falmouth.
More waterfront than any other town in the US, beaches, resturants, golf, AND trash pickup!
Plus, you get to live at your summer vacation spot.
