Milford City Council approved changes to the solid waste ordinance on Monday, March 9, 2015. Under the new ordinance, businesses and residences who have more trash that can fit inside the collection can provided by the city two or three consecutive times will be issued a mandatory second trash can at an additional cost. A larger can will be required if the residence or business is currently using a small one and have more trash than will fit inside the can for more than two or three consecutive pickups. Upgrading to the larger can will not incur additional costs.

The city’s annual Spring Clean-up Week was also announced at the City Council meeting. During the week of March 30 through April 3, customers may place additional items for disposal next to the trash container on their regularly scheduled pickup day. There will be no additional charge for the service and customers do not have to all ahead for bulk pickup during this week.

There are guidelines that must be followed such as placing items beside the container on the regular trash day by the curb before 7 AM. Yard waste must be placed inside the regular yard waste container on the regular yard waste collection day. The Gold Route, which are customers that normally have trash picked up on Monday will have yard waste picked up on Wednesday, April 1. The Maroon Route, which normally has trash picked up on Tuesday or Friday will have yard waste picked up Wednesday, April 8. In addition to the yard waste inside the can, customers may also place a maximum of three bundles of branches next to the can. Branches must be cut into lengths of four feet or less and must be three inches in diameter or smaller. No bagged yard waste will be accepted.

Commercial trash, construction debris and hazardous materials will not be accepted and the city will only pick up additional trash once during the week.  A return trip will not be made on alternate days during this week. For more information, please call the Customer Service Department at 302-422-6616 option 2.
