Bulk trash pickup will take place in May
Milford will begin its 2015 bulk waste pickup program on Wednesday, May 6.
According to the mayor’s office, all homeowners are asked to honor the schedule and not place bulk waste at the curb any sooner than the Saturday prior to their scheduled pickup. All items are to be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the scheduled pickup date.
Homeowners must properly prepare and separate the bulky waste. Metal must be separated from burnable items. Yard waste should be placed in disposable containers or bags. Brush and wood must be cut to four-foot lengths and tied in bundles. No more than four passenger car tires may be included in the items set out for collection.
Where possible, similar items should be placed together in containers, which the homeowner wishes to discard. All acceptable items placed at the curb will be taken, including containers, city officials said.
Certain items are prohibited from the bulky waste pickup program. The following items will not be picked up, and therefore, should not be placed at the curb:
