Easy fix Scott . Find a house near by that has garbage pick up on Thursday and leave all your junk there ! Done !
Anita March 23, 2013 at 12:21 PM
My garbage day is also on Friday. Maybe someone could actually do their job and fix this so I know what day my pick up is or I could just put my garbage out on May 1st and wait.

As photographer Martha Worth noted, the treasure hunters will be out, looking for ways to save City taxpayers tons of time and labor. Hurray for Yankee know-how and true grit in the underground economy.
RONALD M GOLDWYN March 23, 2013 at 02:13 PM
As the photo shows, many put their old electronics out early, but scavengers just came and snipped the power cords for its copper leaving a useless but still good piece of electronics.

We also have a Friday trash day. It would be appreciated if the city would post the appropriate heavy trash collection day. I assume the omission was a clerical error. Thank you in advance.

Is it safe to assume our bulk pick-up will be the 29th? Probably not because you know what happens when you ass-u-me....
Alan Wulff March 23, 2013 at 05:38 PM
Is there only one bulk pickup this year? Or will the schedule for the second pickup in the September time frame be posted later?
Al Bissonnette March 24, 2013 at 12:21 AM
I believe that the bulk pickup dates schedule was posted in error; as there is absolutely no trash pickup on Wednesday anywhere in this town of Milford. As I see it, if your trash day is Thursday than your bulk pickup date would be May 15th.and if your trash day is Friday than your bulk pickup date would be May 22nd. You can also call the Public Works department to inquire about if a September bulk pickup date will be offered. Also the Public Works Department's recorded bulk pickup schedule dates may also be corrected,omitting any mention of a Wednesday , and includeing Friday.

I would say the Patch got it wrong. Here is the link for the schedule posted on the City of Milford website: http://www.ci.milford.ct.us/public_documents/MilfordCT_Press/F223CCC9-3B9ACA00-01A9BC52.2/Bulk%20Schedule%202013.pdf If your garbage day is: These are your pickup days Monday - MAY 1 Tuesday - MAY 8 Thursday - May 15 Friday - May 22 Fall pickup cannot be announced until the 13-14 budget is passed.

RMG I think we should put electronics on your lawn............ since you are so worried about it! "once an air bag, always an air bag"
bob fonck April 21, 2013 at 05:07 PM
what about appliances can I put out a old fridge?
Michael Nelson May 02, 2013 at 03:36 PM
Ryan, how many people just jumped to the bottom to remind you of the days of the week without reading the cut and paste message? I feel for ya, man. On bob's note, what about a refrigerator (with doors removed?)
Ryan Sartor (Editor) May 02, 2013 at 04:15 PM
Hi, Mike! I messed up with that first post. There are some things you don't mess with: One is the bulk pick-up schedule. Regarding refrigerators, I'm really not sure. I would give a call to Public Works: (203) 783-3265. If you can't find out from calling them, let me know and I'll get you an answer.
Michael Nelson May 02, 2013 at 05:11 PM
It seems the public is to call DPW the Monday before their scheduled pick up date so the crew is aware of what will be picked up. Thanks for being a sport, Ryan!
PK May 06, 2013 at 01:04 PM
I believe that if you have a heavy item that can't be picked up easily by one person, like an appliance you need to call Public Works the Monday before. I had an old stove last year I called & they picked it up separately from the other items.
Concerned Parent May 06, 2013 at 01:14 PM
Ron is correct, there are scavengers out there who most likely take those items...Some may even take most metal items so they can sell it for scrap. People may want to consider donating any electronics (if in working condition). I believe the scouts were doing this some time ago and were collecting them behind the library.. IMHO, we should not expect our garbage men to pickup extremely heavy items.
Kathy Carroll May 12, 2013 at 07:44 PM
If you put out a white item (Fridge, stove, washer/dryer) all the doors absolutly must be removed as they are a saftey hazard as kids climb in shut the doors and well we know what happens. Must call on Monday so they can have the correct number of men in your neighbor hoodf
Rita Moffatt-Dering May 28, 2013 at 12:03 PM
Why am I still seeing bulk trash all over town? Was the schedule changed? If so, please updated this page. My last regular trash was picked up on Friday, May 24th.
Michael Nelson June 09, 2013 at 11:17 PM
I'm relatively new to town - does DPW pick up the brown paper backs with grass clippings or hedge trimmings?
