DelaPage1ware residents and businesses have weekly refuse collection service through the use of  blue tip-cart toter containers (for all non-apartment residents). Each household receives a specially designed two-wheel, 32- or 96-gallon tip-cart container for refuse collection. Our uniquely designed side-load trucks will  enable  the driver to lift and dump  the containers with a hydraulic arm. The responsibility of the resident is to place the container properly, away from trees and mailboxes, and to clear snow  as needed.
