      Yard Waste cannot be picked up unless it is in a container clearly marked "YARD WASTE", properly bundled (2 x 4), placed in paper yard waste bags or compostable, not biodegradable, plastic bags.  Paper yard waste bags can be purchased at local hardware stores, local grocery stores, or home improvement stores.  Compostable plastic bags (made of plant fiber) can be purchased on the internet.  If your yard waste does not comply with pick-up, please call Town Hall at 302-539-8011 to arrange for a special collection.  A $47 minimum charge will apply.

    free clean up
    Free Cleanup is the last two weeks of April and October.

    Bulk trash will be picked up free during these weeks on regular trash collection day. Leave it out where you normally leave your garbage, and Public Works will dispose of it at their convenience. There is no need to notify Town Hall.
    • This does not include construction material, hazardous materials, paints or explosives. Limbs/branches must be cut into six-foot lengths tied into bundles and the doors must be removed from major appliances.

    Any other time of year there will be a fee at the discretion of the Public Works Director. Please call Town Hall, (302) 539-8011, for arrangements.

    Note: It is recommended that plastic bag liners be used in all residential garbage cans to increase efficiency in collection and to reduce breeding of flies and mosquitoes.
