Long before Act 101 was passed in 1988, the County of Delaware and its residents considered recycling important to our environment.  Recycling has never been just a matter of placing your papers, bottles, and cans in your recycling containers.   Delaware County residents believe strongly in the three R's  Reduce-Reuse & Recycle.

As a result, Delaware County maintains a Compost Farm; operates an igloo program where residents can bring clear, green and brown glass,as well as aluminum; hosts Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Days; provides recycling education to schools; provides technical  recycling assistance to municipalities; and  actively looks to link businesses that produce products made with recycled materials to end users.

It is suggested that prior to going to any of the vendors listed in this guide, that you call and verify the hours of operation and if there is a charge for their service.

This Recycling Web Site is a guide to help answer some of your recycling questions.  The site is constantly being updated to better serve you, the public.   If you are a commercial recycler and would like to be added to our guide listing the items that you recycle please call 610-892-9627 or E-Mail the recycling office at

For general recycling information  please contact us 610-892-9627.  The Recycling Office which is part of the Delaware County Solid Waste Authority is located in Rose Tree Park.
