The Delaware County Solid Waste Authority is committed to excellence. Our goal is to provide the county with an outstanding, but necessary service while preserving the environment and natural resources of the future. The county's trash is recycled into energy (electricity) through a combustion process producing a byproduct (ash) that makes an outstanding cover for the county landfill. Click on our History tab for more information about us.

Our motto, reduce, reuse, and recycle is evidenced by the various programs we provide. A successful curbside recycling program is run by the individual municipalities.   Glass, aluminum, bimetallic cans and plastic bottles are collected in County maintained Igloo containers throughout the County.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collections are held annually; through a collective effort with Bucks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties to collect and dispose of harmful chemicals accumulated in the home and televisions and computers.*

The Delaware County Solid Waste Authority also manages the operation of a leaf composting farm located on the grounds of Transfer Station #1, Chester Township. The processed compost and mulch is available, free of charge at the Marple Transfer Station, to residents for their gardening and landscaping needs until the supply is exhausted.*

The Delaware County Solid Waste Authority is responsible for:

  • Issuance of permits for all commercial and residential vehicles to dispose of trash at the Transfer Stations;
  • Monitoring of trash at the Transfer Stations and enforcement of County ordinances dealing with refuse collection, permitting, and disposal;
  • Planning, developing, designing, and administering - in cooperation with other appropriate departments and agencies of government - the expansion and modification of facilities for which the Solid Waste Authority is responsible;
  • Advising County Council on matters pertaining to the responsibilities of the Authority;
  • Providing management through inspection, coordination, and approval of payments for the transferal of trash materials;
  • Obtaining and administering state funding available for the enhancement of recycling and other programs for which the Authority is responsible.
