The Milford Board of Health recently voted to launch a new curbside recycling program that will allow residents to dispose of unwanted textiles by simply leaving them in a bag on the sidewalk. Under a new three-year contract, the town will partner with Simple Recycling and Waste Zero to operate this service, which comes at no additional cost to residents or the community.
Simple Recycling has sent mailers to all households that are eligible to participate in Milford’s curbside rubbish/recycling program with information of this new textile recycling program, which began on October 29, 2018. Eligible households will also receive a pair of bright, pink plastic bags about a week and a half before it launches. Eligible households entitled for this service are those households presently participating in the current curbside collection. These household are dwellings including apartments of no more than five (5) dwelling units.
Residents can discard unwanted clothes, drapes, bedspreads and other textiles by placing them in the bags and leaving them on the curb beside their recycling bins. Employees of Simple Recycling will travel the town’s recycling routes in private vans and collect the items. For each bag placed at curbside, Simple Recycling will leave a new bag, and additional bags can always be requested.
