DELHI, NY, AUGUST 25, 2022– Gather up old paints, thinners and pesticides. Clean Sweep 2022 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 26th 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.
Register online at cleansweepdelaware.eventbrite.com by October 1st. If you prefer to register by phone call (607) 865-6474 between September 15-30, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or register by email to [email protected] to share your list of items; you’ll be assigned a day and time to bring your items. This public service is brought to you by the Delaware County Department of Public Works and the Watershed Agricultural Council (WAC), with funding from Delaware County, WAC, NYC DEP and NYS DEC.
