Only Rain Down the Drain!
Dispose of Household Hazardous Wastes properly. Leftover cleaning chemicals, automotive fluids, pesticides, solvents, and paints should never be dumped into storm drains, streets, ditches or sinks.
The Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) holds Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events at different locations in the state throughout the year. Delaware residents can bring their waste materials to the events free of charge.Click here to download a printable PDF of DSWA's 2014 Collection Event schedule and acceptable materials list.
