Yard Waste Drop-Off Sites



Yard waste is banned from all Delaware landfills. The best way to handle most yard waste is to compost or mulch it on-site. Larger items may need to be handled at a commercial composting site.

Many Delaware trash haulers offer yard waste service, and landowners can also take their yard waste to a commercial drop-off site. Commercial waste haulers and drop off sites (except the Polly Drummond Hill Road site in New Castle County, charge a fee for yard waste drop-off.

The following list of mulching facilities is not meant to be exhaustive nor an endorsement by DNREC. If your company wants to be added or removed from this list, please call us at 302.739.9403 (Ext. 1) and we will add your information to the list.
