FAQs for the City of Middleton


The standard size carts are the 95-gallon trash (brown) cart and 95-gallon recycling (blue) cart. 35-gallon and 65-gallon carts are available as well. There is a one-time $15.00 fee to have us switch your cart(s) at the curb. Or, you can also bring your current cart size to our office in Madison for an exchange without a fee (Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm). We need one day notice to bring carts over from another location, so please contact us at least one day in advance.

The automated collection program is not intended to provide this type of service. We do offer temporary dumpsters that come in 6, 12, 20 and 30 cubic yard sizes to meet your needs. We recommend contacting us prior to the start of your cleanout for a quote.
