DNREC to hold public meetings on Universal Recycling throughout the state on March 22, 23, 28 and 29

I was sent this email from DNREC (ok, well, I was sent this email from Jud Bennett who was sent this email from DNREC) – thought I would share the word:

 

DNREC to hold public meetings on Universal Recycling throughout the state on March 22, 23, 28 and 29

DOVER (March 7, 2011) – DNREC’s Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Branch will hold four public meetings this month to provide information and answer questions on the new Universal Recycling Law (Senate Bill 234) signed by Governor Markell on June 8, 2010.

 

The new law establishes a comprehensive statewide system of recycling that with full implementation will include effective and convenient recycling programs for every Delaware residence and business. The law is structured to maximize recycling rates and diversion of waste and is expected to support and stimulate job growth and new businesses.

 

By Sept. 15, 2011, waste haulers will provide single stream (all recyclables mixed in one container) recycling collection services to every single family residential customer and to bars and restaurants that provide on-premise sales. Some waste haulers will provide this service beginning in April.

 

Single stream recycling collection services will be provided by waste haulers to multi-family residential customers by Jan. 1, 2013; and by Jan. 1, 2014, all commercial businesses will participate in a comprehensive recycling program.
