Harrington suspends yard waste drop-off program

The city of Harrington is discontinuing the Wednesday yard waste drop-off program due to a lack of available space. Yard waste will still be accepted during the spring and fall clean up. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Yard waste can be taken to Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) sites. The Milford Transfer Station and Sandtown Landfill are the closest locations. Fees will apply.

Have you considered composting? Make use of yard waste and kitchen scraps by turning them into food for your plants. See this Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) page to learn about composting.

DNREC prohibits the mixing of yard waste with regular household trash. Yard waste cannot be placed in your trash or recycling cart as part of the weekly trash pick-up.

Yard waste includes grass, leaves, pruning, brush, shrubs, garden material, Christmas trees and tree Limbs up to four inches in diameter
