The Delaware Solid Waste Authority operates Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Events at different locations throughout the year and weekly through out locations in the state. Delaware residents can bring their HHW to the event free of charge.
What you can do:
- Trash that fat: Let kitchen fats cool in a container – such as a used soup can – and throw it away in the trash. Wipe or scrape excess oil from pots and pans into the trash.
- Catch the yuck: Place a strainer in the sink drain to catch food scraps and other solids.
- Support local schools: Participate in the annual Great Schools, Clean Streams campaign (no child necessary to participate.) Winning schools earn cash prizes.
