City Celebrates Spring Clean Up Week


The City of Milford will kick off the season with their annual Spring Clean Up begining the week of April 16 through 20. On Saturday, April 21 the City will hold a public celebration along with Blessings Greenhouses and Compost Facility to ring in the much awaited start of the spring season.

During Spring Clean Up Week the City of Milord allows residents of Milford to place larger items at their point of collection to do some spring cleaning of their own. Bulky items can be placed out with collected trash by 7am each morning this week with no bulk scheduling necessary.

Solid Waste crews will collect furniture, appliances, large items, tires, excessive trash, yard waste, bagged leaves and bundled limbs at no extra charge during spring clean up week. Items to be excluded from collection include commercial or demolition rubbish, or hazardous materials such as paints, oils or insecticides. All Appliances must be free of Freon.

On Saturday, April 21 Public Work Crews, City officials and Blessing Greenhouses and Compost Facility will be at the Milford Public Works Building, located on 180 Vickers Road, from 10am-1pm. The event wraps up the 2012 Milford Spring Cleanup, where Blessings has partnered with the town by waiving all Milford’s tipping fees during the week of the cleanup. Hot dogs and soft drinks will be available.

Bruce Blessings of Blessing Greenhouses and Compost Facility will be present on Saturday handing out free 30-lb bags of their OMRI-Listed Premium Compost to the first 100 people who stop by. This compost is made from materials that Bruce collects from the City of Milford Yard Waste program throughout the year.
