As of January 1, 2016, the Village of Milford has joined the Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC), which expanded offerings for recycling, household hazardous waste, and electronic waste disposal services to our residents. These enhanced services are available to Village residents at no additional cost to the services that were already in place.
Download a copy of the Recycling Guidelines from RRRASOC, which includes guidelines for recycling, and more.
The RRRASOC website – www.rrrasoc.org – is a great source of information regarding recycling, composting, and more, including a listing of future household hazardous waste collection events. In addition to the Village, the authority serves residents in Milford Township and the cities of Farmington, Farmington Hills, Novi, Southfield, South Lyon, Walled Lake, and Wixom.
The curbside recycling program uses an 18-gallon recycling bin. The recycling bin belongs to the Village. If you move, please leave the recycling bin at the home. If you need a new bin, you may pick one up at the Village offices.
Recycling Carts Available for Village Residents
Village residents can order FREE 64-gallon recycling carts from Green for Life Services (GFL) to replace one or more recycling bins. These carts will have a list of accepted items printed right on the lid to help make recycling easier. To order a cart, Contact GFL at 844.464.3587 or send an email to email@example.com.
