Delaware sets workshops on updated recycling regs

The trade publication Recycling Today reports:
The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) will hold a series of public workshops throughout the state in September to introduce, discuss and explain the draft Universal Recycling Regulations for Delaware.
During the workshops the public will have the opportunity to have the draft regulations explained and to hear about the purposes behind the new regulations, as well as discuss current issues related to universal recycling compliance.
The places, dates and locations for the workshops are:
  • New Castle County – Sept. 6, 101 Governor’s Place, Bear; 
  • Sussex County – Sept. 7, DNREC Lewes Field Office, 901 Pilottown Rd., Lewes; and
  • Kent County – Sept. 14, DNREC Auditorium, Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway SW, Dover.
All workshops will be from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The purpose of the proposed regulations is to ensure that collection services for recyclables are consistent with the law; collected recyclables are not landfilled or incinerated; recyclables are properly processed and enter the marketplace; that recycling in Delaware can be effectively measured; and that waste diversion is maximized through the reduction of solid waste deposited in the state’s landfills
