DOVER – DNREC is once again rolling out an opportunity for Delaware residents to recycle their old and disused tires at a Scrap Tire Drop-Off Day put on by the Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., rain or shine, Saturday, April 1 at the Middletown DelDOT Yard, 5369 Summit Bridge Road, Middletown, DE 19709.
The Recycling Public Advisory Council (RPAC) will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the Sussex Conference Room, Department of Insurance, 841 Silver Lake Blvd., Dover, DE 19904.
Delawareans are encouraged to give their recycling spirit a boost after the holiday season by delivering their Christmas trees to one of many yard waste recycling facilities located throughout the state. Please note that Christmas trees are no longer accepted for recycling at any Delaware State Park locations.
From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, Americans throw away 25 percent more trash than at any other time of year. Boxes, wrappings, packaging and party goods add tons of extra garbage to Delaware’s landfills. When deposited in a landfill, a Christmas tree can take up as much space as a washing machine. Thus DNREC reminds Delawareans that holiday time is the right time to reduce your “waste-line” while helping the environment – by recycling your Christmas tree along with all those extra mail order boxes, gift-wrapped packages, tags and cards.
