The Town of Milford now has "Zero Sort Recycling". Acceptable materials include: cereal boxes, pasta boxes, shoe boxes, juice boxes, newspapers, junk mail, envelopes, catalogs, soft cover books, telephone books, magazines, plastic containers #1-#7 (Milk jugs, bleach, detergent, shampoo bottles) and rigid plastic (laundry baskets, buckets), any color glass bottles and containers, aluminum, tin, and steel containers. All recyclable materials can be combined and placed into a container. If you "outgrow" your recycling bins, you can use a regular trash can or any other container. Stickers are available at the Town Office which can be placed on your containers to designate them as recycling. We also have magnets available at the town office with recycling information.
Curbside recycling collection - the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of the month.
Beginning March 1st, 2016, The Milford Transfer Station will be closed and Milford residents will begin using the Old Town Recycle Center out by the Old Town Airport.
