As of January 1, 2016, the Village of Milford has joined the Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC), which will expand offerings for recycling, household hazardous waste, and electronic waste disposal services to our residents. These enhanced services will be available to Village residents at no additional cost to the services already in place.
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.

Simple Recycling Launches in the Village
Effective Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Village residents can participate in the Simple Recycling program. Single family households recently received a postcard along with two Simple Recycling bags and other information to introduce the Simple Recycling curbside clothing recycling program.
Residents can fill the bags with unwanted clothing, textiles and other household items and set them out for collection on Tuesdays, the same day as their weekly trash and recycling collection. Simple Recycling Inc. will collect the full bags and leave replacements behind.
For more information about the clothing recycling program, contact Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068 or www.simplerecycling.com.
