Cherry Island Landfill Expansion

On January 6, 2006, the Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control (DNREC) issued Permit SW-06/01 to the Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) for the expansion of the Cherry Island Landfill (CIL). A condition of the Permit is the establishment of a Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) composed of residents who live north of the C & D Canal. The members of the CAB as set forth in the Permit are representatives selected by (a) the Senator representing the district adjacent to NSWMC-2 (currently Senatorial District #2); (b) the Representative representing the district adjacent to the NSWMC-2 (currently Representative District #2); (c) Wilmington City Council; (d) Wilmington Mayor’s office; (e) New Castle County Executive; (f) New Castle County Council Chair; and (g) the Governor of Delaware.

The CAB shall meet at least quarterly and be responsible for establishing and abiding by a charter for providing advice to DSWA and related state agencies and private sector companies on issues related to the operation of the CIL, minimizing impacts resulting from landfill operations and capacity, the role of the CIL in the overall statewide Solid Waste Management Plan, and recycling and resource recovery options.


The next meeting of The Citizens’ Advisory Board (CAB) will be on
October 3, 2016

at the Delaware Recycling Center
11101 Lambson Lane, New Castle
