Trash & Recycling
Trash & Recycling collection in all three Ardens is handled by Waste Management. Community-wide pickup means less wear-and-tear on our roads, and is more economical too. The cost of the service is included in your land rent. If you need a receptacle or have problems with pickup, contact Waste Management directly by calling 800-345-7932, and tell them you are calling about service to the “Village of Arden.” If you say simply “Arden,” they won’t be able to find the account. (The account names for the other villages are “Trustees of Ardentown” and “Village of Ardencroft.”)
If you have a recurring problem with Waste Management, contact the Civic Committee trash liaison by sending an email here.
Our Trash & Recycling flier contains all the basic information you need. You can download it by clicking the link. WM delivers recyclables to the Delaware Solid Waste Authority, so follow DSWA guidelines for what to include in your single-stream recycling. See DSWA.com more about recycling in Delaware.
