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.
Also on site at the DRC is DSWA’s Environmental Education Building. The education building includes a classroom with multimedia equipment where our education staff will present a range of information on DSWA facilities, programs and our partner companies ReCommunity and Revolution Recovery. The ultimate goal is to inform children (and adults) about what happens to trash once it is thrown away and just how important it is to recycle.
Each Wednesday a Household Hazardous Waste Collection is held form 10am-2pm. Household Hazardous Waste can include items such as household cleaners, garden pesticides, oil-based paints only (no latex paint will be accepted), nail polish, fluorescent bulbs, and antifreeze.

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.
