DSWA believes in educating both children and adults about waste management issues. We all make trash. Learning how to make less and safely manage the rest will help us become responsible citizens.
One of the most public ways DSWA reaches Delaware school children is through its Earth Day Festival. Children can come learn about various environmental issues, often with hands-on demonstrations.
DSWA has many brochures and other literature available. For a list of materials, see Publications.
Tours of DSWA landfills and other facilities are available to the public or school groups. Please contact our Public Information Group at 1-800-404-7080 for more information.
