DNREC To Hold Recycling Workshops

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. – DNREC’s Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances has announced it will hold three public workshops next month across the state to introduce draft Universal Recycling Regulations for Delaware. The informal workshops will be held in each county, offering the public an opportunity to have the draft regulations explained and to hear about the purposes behind the new regulations, as well as discussing current issues related to universal recycling compliance.

The places, dates and locations for the workshops are:

  • New Castle County – Tuesday, Sept. 6, Bear Library, 101 Governor’s Place, Bear, DE 19701
     
  • Sussex County – Wednesday, Sept. 7, DNREC Lewes Field Office, 901 Pilottown Road, Lewes, DEC 19958
     
  • Kent County – Wednesday, Sept. 14, DNREC Auditorium, Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway SW, Dover DE 19901.

All workshops will be held from 3 - 4:30 p.m.

The agency says the purpose of the proposed regulations is to ensure  that collection services for recyclable materials are consistent with the law, that collected recyclable materials are not put in landfills or incinerated, that recyclable materials are properly processed and enter the marketplace,  that recycling in Delaware can be effectively measured, and that waste diversion is maximized through the reduction of solid waste deposited in the state’s landfills.

DNREC encourages all interested parties to attend, including waste service providers, property managers, and the commercial sector.
