DNREC to hold series of workshops on grant opportunity and
recycling requirements for Delaware businesses and institutions


DOVER (Jan. 31, 2013) – With recycling services now available to every Delaware resident, all commercial businesses and institutions will also be participating soon in the state’s comprehensive recycling program. To help Delaware’s businesses and institutions comply with their Jan. 1, 2014 deadline for the Universal Recycling Law, DNREC will hold a series of informational workshops in February throughout the state. Locations, dates and times for the workshops are listed below.


Delaware’s Universal Recycling Law establishes a comprehensive statewide system of recycling that, with full implementation, will provide efficient and convenient recycling programs for every Delaware residence, business, and institution. Universal Recycling is structured to maximize recycling rates and diversion of waste and support and stimulate job growth and new businesses in Delaware. 


Business owners and Institution managers are encouraged to attend one of the workshops to learn about the growing recycling opportunities in Delaware. Materials commonly recycled in the commercial sector may include corrugated cardboard, food waste, scrap lumber and scrap metals, office paper, and various plastics.


DNREC staff will be available at the workshops to provide assistance tailored to businesses and institutions with discussion on legislative requirements, grant funding, commercial recycling toolkits, and local recycling success stories. Learn more at or call 302-739-9403.
