Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Sites

Do you know how to dispose of your old and unused household waste and electronics? What about all those documents with confidential information? The Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) is here to help! They hold regular drop off events for Hazardous Household Waste and Electronics and shredding events to destroy that sensitive information.

Why not just throw it in the trash? 
  • Properly disposing of dangerous household chemicals and unused medicines keeps them from polluting our land and water. 
  • Recycling electronic goods removes potentially hazardous materials from the waste stream and saves landfill space. 
  • Shredding sensitive documents is one way to reduce your risk of becoming an identity theft victim.
Delaware residents can bring their items to these events free of charge.
Here is a handy map of scheduled household waste and electronics drop-off and paper shredding events in Delaware:
