DNREC’s Polly Drummond Hill Road Yard Waste Site will shorten
schedule; site to be closed Mondays and Tuesdays starting April 6
 

DOVER (March 30, 2015) – In order to reduce operating costs and discourage commercial use of DNREC’s Polly Drummond Hill Road Yard Waste Demonstration Site in northern New Castle County, the site will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays, effective April 6. Commercial businesses, such as landscaping and lawn care companies, as well as municipalities, are not eligible to drop off materials at the DNREC yard waste site. 

Starting next month the Polly Drummond Hill Road site’s regular hours will be 8 a.m.-sunset, opening on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; with the site closed Mondays and Tuesdays. 

New Castle County residents wishing to recycle their yard waste on days when the Polly Drummond Yard waste site is closed may manage the material on their own property, arrange for a collection service, or use the options listed below. These private businesses offer yard waste drop-off and may charge a fee for services. For more information, please contact each business directly.
