Residents and commercial haulers can bring trash to the Milford Transfer Station rather than driving to one of DSWA’s landfills nearest to Milford. Vehicles drive up a ramp into an enclosed building where trash is dumped onto a concrete floor. A backhoe carefully pushes the trash into a transfer trailer, which takes it to a DSWA landfill. Key features of the transfer station consist of a scale house, two scales, a transfer station building with a three-bay tipping floor, and a separate small load area where residents can deposit waste. In addition, there are designated areas outside to receive used appliances, tires, and yard waste.
A drop-off container is available for residents to drop off Styrofoam for recycling. Residents are able to drop off their clean Styrofoam, such as foam cups, foam plates, foam egg cartons, take out containers, as well as foam protective packaging typically used to protect consumer goods and electronics.
