MILFORD — The city has announced its spring bulk waste pickup program schedule.

(Grass clippings are not permitted); brush and wood must be cut, tied, and bundled in lengths 4-feet or less; passenger car tires (four tires max) must be separated from other waste; metal must be no longer than 4-foot lengths and separated from other waste; electronics and white goods must be separated from other waste; and bulk waste must be placed away from regular trash/recycling containers.

Bulk waste must be set out for collection no sooner than the Saturday prior to the scheduled pickup.

Hazardous waste; liquid waste including oil-based paint; propane tanks; grass clippings, logs, and stumps; and sheetrock, concrete/cement, bricks, porcelain tubs, sinks or toilets and other demolition material are prohibited from the bulk waste and transfer station program.
