Town to start collecting leaves Monday

The town will begin collecting leaves that are swept to the edge of the sidewalk, or to the front of the property lines where no sidewalks exist, according the Highway Department. The collections will begin Monday and continue through the end of next month on weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting. Leaves should not bagged, and no household garbage, trash, grass, sticks, or rocks will be accepted along with the leaves. Leaves will be collected just once per street; a street-by-street schedule is available on the town’s website, www.milford.ma.us . For more information, call the highway department office at 508-473-1274.
