Brandywine Hundred Community Yard Waste Drop-off Site

Free Drop-Off for Yard Waste Since Feb. 14th

The Brandywine Hundred Community Yard Waste Demonstration Site will open Friday, Feb. 15 for residential yard waste, including all plant materials resulting from lawn maintenance and landscaping activities. The new site, located on the north side of Cauffiel Parkway, approximately 100 yards east of the Cauffiel Parkway and Philadelphia Pike (Business Route 13) intersection, serves as a cost-free and convenient option for residents to comply with the northern New Castle County yard waste ban.

Site Hours

The Brandywine Hundred site is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and is for use by New Castle County residents only. Commercial businesses, such as landscaping and lawn care companies, as well as municipalities are not eligible. Only loose material can be left; plastic bags and other containers must be emptied and removed from the site. Instructional signs are posted on-site.


What Happens to the Waste?

Yard waste will be periodically ground into useable landscape mulch, and New Castle County residents can pick up free mulch when it is available. Mulch benefits plants and the soil by conserving moisture, impeding weed growth and increasing the soil’s organic content. Mulching also reduces the need for costly chemical herbicides and fertilizers. For more information, click on the news link, below.
