Cheswold Clean Up Day 2019

Date Posted: Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

We would like to thank our citizens who participated in our first Cheswold Clean Up Day. We are very pleased with the outcome, and look forward to making this an annual event. There were many who took the opportunity to clean out unwanted items from their homes.  We would also like to thank RPJ for donating the dumpsters to the Town for the day.  If you were unable to participate in Clean Up Day, or still have items that need to be disposed of, please check the schedule at any of the local DSWA Facilities. They accept different items throughout the week. They also have shredding events, if you have documents that need to be properly disposed. Community Feedback If you have any comments, or would like to make suggestions for next year’s Clean Up Day, please email us at cheswoldoffice@comcast.net.
