Mayor Ben Blake announced today that Milford’s Spring Bulk Waste Pickup Program is scheduled for June 2020. While traditionally held each May, this year’s Spring Bulk Waste Pickup is delayed until June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This planned pickup is subject to change and conditioned upon residents respecting new restrictions and rules intended to mitigate safety concerns and promote social distancing. Residents should adhere to the following health-driven requirements:

- Bulk waste must be placed away from regular trash/recycling containers; and
- Bulk waste must be set out for collection no sooner than the Friday prior to and no later than the Sunday prior to the scheduled pickup.

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.
