Trash & Recycling Pickup collection occurs WEEKLY, Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. See Schedule for your assigned collection day. Yard Waste collection also occurs weekly during April through December each year. Collection times will vary.

Yard Waste

The Delaware Code prohibits residents from combining yard waste with household garbage or recycling. All yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, tree branches, twigs, brush, shrubs, bushes, and weeds must be placed - UNBAGGED - into the green yard waste container provided by Kent County. Kent County provides “Yard Waste” service to the communities that voted to receive the service. Yard Waste collection occurs on the resident’s normal collection day. Exact dates are published on the County’s website.
