DNREC’s first in a series of recycling requirement and grant
opportunity workshops for businesses Feb. 13 in Middletown


DOVER (Feb. 12, 2013) – With recycling services now available to every Delaware resident, it will soon be time for commercial businesses and institutions to begin participating in the state’s comprehensive recycling program. DNREC will hold the first in a series of informational workshops on Universal Recycling and to emphasize recycling grant opportunities for businesses and institutions Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 3:30 p.m. in Middletown.


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 to support and stimulate job growth and new businesses in Delaware. All of the state’s businesses and institutions have until Jan. 1, 2014 to comply with Universal Recycling Law.


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 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.
