DNREC’s Polly Drummond Hill Road yard waste drop-off site shortens
schedule; will be closed Monday through Thursday starting August 3
 

DOVER (July 9, 2015) – To reduce operating costs and to discourage non-residential use of DNREC’s Polly Drummond Hill Road Yard Waste Drop-off Demonstration Site in northern New Castle County, the site will run on an abbreviated schedule effective August 3. From that date, Polly Drummond Hill Road site will be closed Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, opening on Fridays and weekends.

The Polly Drummond Hill Road site was opened for the exclusive use of Delaware residents bringing yard waste from their own residential property. No one else – including commercial businesses, such as landscaping and lawn care companies, as well as municipalities – is allowed to drop off yard waste materials at the DNREC site. 

Starting next month the Polly Drummond Hill Road site’s regular hours will be 8 a.m. - sunset, opening on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; with the site to be closed from August 3 for the remaining four days of each week. The new schedule is due in part to cuts in the operating budget for the site that became effective July 1.

Delaware 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 any of the options listed below. These private businesses offer yard waste drop-off services and may charge a fee for services. For more information, please contact each business directly.
