10/05/2017 - Gather up old paints, thinners and pesticides. Clean Sweep 2017 is the place to turn in all those questionable items that might pollute our waterways, soils and homes.
Every year, regional partners for clean water and a healthy environment host a community hazardous waste collection day, known as Clean Sweep. Now in its 21st year, Clean Sweep provides a safe disposal venue by collecting chemicals and other materials which pose a threat to public health, water and environment.
Clean Sweep is free to farmers in the eight NYC Watershed counties and free to all Delaware County household residents. Delaware County businesses, municipalities and county agencies are also invited to properly dispose of waste materials. Disposal services for businesses and municipalities are provided "at cost" with a cost estimate based on your itemized disposal list.
