Civic Committee Agenda July 2022established January 1968 by the Town Assembly
The Civic Committee is responsible for the maintenance and repair of roads, paths, greens, storm sewers, and trees on greens and rights-of-way. This includes determining when repairs and maintenance are needed, soliciting bids, and hiring contractors. It oversees most permits. It is also responsible for maintenance of the Field Theater adjacent to the Village Green.
Trash & Recycling Updates
Trash Schedule for Arden October-December 2022 (September 27 is a recycling day.)
For the latest Trash & Recycling Flyer for all 3 Ardens, click here.
Trash & Recycling collection in all three Ardens is provided by Trash Tech. 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.
Weekly household trash is Wednesday in Arden; Thursday in Ardentown and Ardencroft. Yard waste and single-stream recyclables are collected on alternating weeks. To find out the dates for Yard Waste or Recycling collection, see the 2022 Trash Schedule for Arden above. Please note: this calendar shows the Wednesday Arden pickups only; Ardentown & Ardencroft are on Thursdays, and follow the same cycle as Arden for yard waste vs. recyclables.
If you need a receptacle or have problems with pickup, contact Trash Tech directly by calling 302-832-8000.
More questions? Our Trash & Recycling flyer contains all the basic information you need. You can download it by clicking the link. Recyclables are processed by the Delaware Solid Waste Authority, so follow DSWA guidelines for what to include in your single-stream recycling. See DSWA.com for more about recycling in Delaware.

Permission Required for Tree Removal
It is the responsibility of the Civic Committee, and not the leaseholder, to remove trees on Village land (the right-of-way next to the street, for example). Contact the Civic Committee concerning problems with non-leasehold trees. For trees on Arden leaseholds, authorization for removal must be obtained from the Trustees. Please see the Trustees page to download the required form.
