Seasonal Collections and Services

Green Wednesday Yard Waste Pickup

  • March 3 - December 1, 2021
  • From the first week of March to the first week of December, the City collects yard waste on what is commonly called Green Wednesdays. When the city-wide collection discontinues in the winter, residents may call Public Works and schedule their yard waste cart to collect on an upcoming Wednesday. Like household trash and recycling, you must place yard waste in a city-provided cart (green with brown/tan lid) for automated curbside collection. There are no Green Wednesday yard waste collections during weeks with a holiday. Please remember that no manufactured products are allowed in the cart.

Spring Leaf Collection

  • Monday, March 21 - Friday, April 1, 2022
  • To schedule spring leaf collection, please call the Public Works department at 302-366-7000.

Fall Leaf Collection

  • Monday, October 11 - Friday, December 31, 2021
  • City trucks continuously route through the City during the season. Residents should expect collection once per week during the beginning of the season and once every other week during peak season. There is no collection schedule, and neighborhoods do not have assigned days of the week.

Christmas Tree Collection

  • Monday, December 27, 2021 - Friday, January 28, 2022
  • During this time, crews sweep through the City once per week, collecting Christmas trees put out at the curb or service road. Please make sure trees are out for collection each week by Monday at 7:00 in the morning. There is no need to call to schedule a Christmas tree collection. The City will not collect trees after January 28, 2022. For further information, please reference the helpful links below.
