Recycling & Trash Removal

There have been several changes made to the Delaware County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Events. They no longer are taking any electronic waste. This is includes but not limited to Computer screens, TV’s, computers, etc. All Best Buy locations accept TVs and monitors up to 32” with a limit of 3 per day (there is one on Baltimore Pike in Springfield) at no charge. The Salvation Army at 66 Chester Pike in Darby accepts all working TVs and computers.  Staples accepts computer CPU’s; no TVs or monitors.
