Delaware law prohibits ANY brush or lawn debris from being mixed with regular household trash. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROPERLY SEPARATING YOUR TRASH AND YARD WASTE, AND FOR INFORMING YOUR GUESTS AND RENTERS OF THIS POLICY.
Regular Brush and Yard Waste Pickups
The yard waste dates beginning in march will be announced later.
All brush must be:
- cut into 4’ lengths and bundled for removal (using cotton/biodegradable string, not synthetic),
- put into trash cans completely separate from any household debris, OR
- put in disposable paper bags.
Please see the calendar for an up-to-date collection schedule.
Regular Trash and Recycling Pickups
A copy of the full pickup schedule is included with the Annual Directory, as a standalone laminated sheet, and here.
Bulk Household Waste pickup
Bulk household waste is typically scheduled annually in the spring. Items for pickup must be placed by the road side the evening before the scheduled pickup.
Items that will NOT be collected include:
- Automobile batteries;
- Oil and petroleum products;
- Rocks, bricks, dirt;
- Construction debris;
- Tree stumps;
- Flammable/hazardous materials, including oil-based paint;
- Appliances containing CFC/Freon gas, such as refrigerators, freezers and AC units.
Items placed at the roadside after the pickup will be removed at the property owner’s expense.
Bulk Yard Waste Pickup
MBA Bulk yard waste pickup is typically scheduled annually in the late spring. Bulk yard waste pickup will NOT include tree stumps, large trees, or any branches larger than 4 inches in diameter. Place your yard waste in piles by the street. If you miss the announced brush pickup, all brush must be prepared as noted above for removal during the regular bi-weekly brush pickups.
Any loose brush material placed at the roadside after the spring yard waste pickup will be removed at the property owner’s expense.
