DSWA's Curbside Recyling Program

DSWA's CURBSIDE RECYCLING PROGRAM is available to ALL residents of Delaware.

This program offers pick-up every other week of your mixed recyclables at your curb!

 

Attention! - Universal Recycling Update

Effective August 1, 2010 the Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) will not be signing on any NEW CUSTOMERS for the DSWA single-stream curbside recycling program. This policy has been put in place to begin the transition of curbside recycling services from DSWA to municipalities and private trash haulers, which is required in the new Universal Recycling Law.

The Governor’s Universal Recycling Bill was signed into law June 8, 2010. DSWA believes the Universal Recycling Law will significantly increase the amount of recycling participation in Delaware by requiring the municipalities and the private trash haulers to provide curbside recycling service to all of their customers. The new law also requires DSWA to stop offering curbside recycling and yard waste collection services as of September 15, 2011.

DSWA will continue to service existing recycling customers but will not be accepting any new customers. For more information, please call our Citizens’ Response Line 1-800-404-7080

Yard Waste Recycling
Effective April 1, 2010, DSWA will begin to provide every other week collection of yard waste collection on a year-round basis.  If you do not have a DSWA yard waste cart and wish to have one delivered or if you have any other questions about yard waste collection, please call the Citizens’ Response Line at 1-800-404-7080.
  Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) Yard Waste Program
  All residents in the state of Delaware will have the opportunity to participate in DSWA’s new and improved Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) yard waste collection program.  Our pay-as-you-throw program offers pick-up of your yard waste at your curb.
  Yard Waste is collected every other week year round.
  What is Yard Waste? 
  Yard Waste is defined as plant material resulting from lawn maintenance and other horticultural gardening and landscaping activities. It can be specifically described as grass clippings, leaves pruning, brush, shrubs, garden material, and branches
  Purchase Stickers
  Customers will be able to purchase stickers from DSWA.
 

Place 3 pink stickers in the clear bag on the side of the brown yard waste cart each collection day.

Stickers will cost $1 each and are purchased in increments of 10.

  For example, you may purchase 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 stickers at one time.

Stickers are available to order through DSWA’s website or by calling DSWA’s Citizens’ Response Line 1-800-404-7080.  Unless shown otherwise, the stickers will be mailed to the billing address.
