DOVER, Del. – The Polly Drummond Hill yard waste drop-off site near Newark, which opened for the season on Saturday, April 18, was closed to further drop-offs about noon on Sunday because of material capacity and traffic issues. DNREC will work this week to have its contractor shred and remove all the material that was dropped off until the closure, and create a traffic plan with the goal of reopening the site on Saturday, April 25. The site operates Saturdays and Sundays.
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.
