Recycling in Delaware


Curbside recycling is now available throughout much of the state

The goal of the Universal Recycling Law is to maximize the convenience of recycling and minimize the amount of trash disposed in Delaware. Recycling keeps raw materials in the manufacturing sector, creates jobs, and promotes sustainability.

As of January 1, 2014, all commercial businesses in Delaware are required to participate in a comprehensive recycling program. This includes for-profit and not-for profit retail or wholesale stores, offices, food service establishments, warehouses, and other manufacturing, industrial or processing activities, and institutions such as social, charitable, educational, healthcare, professional and government services. 

Waste haulers are also required to provide single-stream recycling collection to both single- and multi-family residential customers, and most bars and restaurants.

Please see the list below for information on recycling grants, toolkits to help your commercial business recycle, the Recycling Public Advisory Council, and other recycling information.
