New Castle County residents who have pledge to be a Clean Stream Champion can purchase discounted rain barrels! You must register to pick-up a rain barrel. Upcoming pickup dates and locations: Friday, October 9 at Paper Mill Park Pavilion, 11:30am – 12:00pm
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.
