The City of Milford and the Milford Fire Department will be conducting a “Propane Tank Collection Day” on Saturday October 1, 2011 to collect 20lb propane cylinders (i.e. from gas grills). The collection is for Milford residents only and proof of residency will be required. There is no cost for this collection.

The collection will take place at 55 Wheelers Farms Road, upper parking lot of Station 7. The collection time will be from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The following shall be adhered to:

· Have proof of residency ready
· Tanks should be transported in an upright position

· Preferable driver only transporting the tank(s)
· Valve must be in the closed position
· We will take full, partially filled and empty 20lb tanks
· DO NOT vent the tank prior to transporting
· Tanks should be secured in place to prevent accidental tip-over
· Tanks showing signs of damage or deterioration can not be refilled
· Tanks should be transported with the vehicle windows open
· No smoking during the transport of the tank or in the drop off area

Propane tanks smaller than 10 lbs. in volume will not be accepted. City residents may dispose of “small 1 pound camp stove propane cylinders” at the Household Hazwaste Central located at Regional Water Authority Headquarters, 90 Sargent Drive, New Haven (203) 401-2712 or visit their website at:
