City of Milford Plans Spring Clean Up Week


By Terry Rogers

Milford City Council voted unanimously on Monday, March 25, 2013, that April 22 through April 26, 2013 be designated as “Spring Clean-Up Week.” In case of inclement weather, the program will be extended through May 3, 2013.

“We do this every year,” said Richard Carmean, City Manager. “This allows citizens to get rid of any large, unwanted items that would normally cost them extra to haul away.” According to the resolution passed at the council meeting, Spring Clean-Up Week promotes “the general cleaning of the City of Milford” and improves “its overall beauty to the maximum enjoyment and benefit of all citizens and visitors.”

During Spring Clean-Up Week, solid waste crews collect furniture, appliances, large items, tires, excessive trash, yard waste and bundled limbs at no additional charge. There is no need to call the city and schedule for pickup of any bulk items during that week. However, there are some stipulations to the items.

All appliances must be free of Freon, and items that will not be collected include commercial or demolition rubbish and hazardous materials, such as paints, oils or insectisides.

Spring Clean-Up Week allows residents to carry out clean-up and fix-up projects which enhance, restore and maintain the beauty of properties in the city. In addition, it helps to preserve the environment by keeping it clean, healthy and in order.
