Waste Industries Trash & Recycle
General Inquiries (302) 378-5400
Waste Industries is always striving to provide our customers with the best quality service and lowest possible rates. In an effort to make their routes as efficient as possible and cut down on the number of times trucks are in the local communities, trash and recycling service days will both occur on the same day beginning Monday, July 1, 2013.
For additional information and services provided by Waste Industries, including their holiday schedule pick up click here.
Remember to be courteous to your neighbors. Ensure your lids are secure on your trash and recycling containers and that any bags are securely tied. There have been complaints of trash blowing throughout the Town on trash and recycling pickup service days. Please help keep the Town clean and take responsibility for your garbage.
If trash or recycling pick-up services are cancelled due to non-payment, there will be a fee (per notice dated 6-1-17) to resume trash pick-up.
