Clean Sweep in 20th Year


Gather up those old paints, thinners and pesticides. Clean Sweep 2016 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 20th 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 on September 23rd and free to all Delaware County household residents on September 24th. 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.
