Polly Drummond Hill Road yard waste site to close for season Friday, Feb. 28

Other yard waste recycling options are available for area residents

DOVER, Del. – DNREC’s Polly Drummond Hill Yard Waste site in New Castle County will close for the season on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020. Normally, the site closes earlier – at the end of January – but due to mild weather, DNREC extended the site’s operation into 2020 to accommodate yard waste activities. Area residents who wish to recycle their yard waste while the Polly Drummond Hill Road site is closed have other options for yard waste disposal.

DNREC’s Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances offers a “What to Do With Yard Waste in Delaware” brochure at de.gov/yardwaste. To find a nearby location for yard waste disposal, click on the blue button “Yard Waste Drop-off Sites” at de.gov/yardwaste for a list of sites categorized by county.

The Polly Drummond Hill Road Yard Waste site will reopen on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Starting on that date, the site will be open Saturday- and Sunday-only from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
