The Senior Appliance Pickup service, offered through the Delaware General Health District's Keep Delaware County Beautiful program, is a free program available to seniors looking to get rid of appliances, televisions and computer equipment through the end of May.

The program will start again in September and will continue until funding for the program is depleted.

The program was developed to prevent injuries that could be sustained from lifting or falling while trying to move appliances or computer components.

The health district contracts with a moving company to pick up large, bulky or heavy items from a resident's home for delivery to Sims Recycling, so that many of the materials are recycled instead of going to a landfill.
