The Delaware Recycling Center (DRC)
Delaware Recycling Center
The Delaware Recycling Center (DRC) is a pivotal piece of DSWA’s role in recycling in Delaware. DSWA has teamed up with two partner companies who have helped to expand DSWA’s goal of creating a green campus. ReCommunity, a nationally recognized company, runs a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where household recycling is sorted and baled. Revolution Recovery, a Philadelphia based company, processes and bales construction and demolition (C&D) waste such as wood, drywall, metal, and carpet. All of the sorted and baled material is then sent to different facilities/ markets to be recycled into new products.
A single stream recycling drop-off center is available during business hours, along with special collection bins for electronic goods such as old computers, TV’s etc. and a drop-off container for Styrofoam. Residents are able to drop off their clean Styrofoam, such as foam cups, foam plates, foam egg cartons, take out containers, as well as foam protective packaging typically used to protect consumer goods and electronics.
