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.
