Milford annouces Christmas tree pick-up schedule

We just received this announcement from Milford City Hall:

MILFORD  — The Public Works Dept. will pick up Christmas trees again this year. However, Mayor Benjamin G. Blake is encouraging residents to recycle their trees.

Thise wishing to recycle trees can bring them to the Walnut Beach or the Tri-Beach parking lots on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. DPW crews will be at both locations to chip the trees.

For those residents who choose not to recycle their trees, the Public Works Department will pick up Christmas trees along with regular garbage pickups throughout the month of January. Trees must be cut into lengths no longer than four feet or they will not be picked up.
