Delaware Recycles


What's New


All commercial businesses in Delaware must take part in a comprehensive recycling program. Universal, comprehensive recycling is required by Delaware state law. This includes for profit and not-for profit retail and wholesale stores, offices, food service establishments, warehouses, and other manufacturing, industrial, or processing activities. And it includes institutions such as social, charitable, educations, health care, professional, and government services.

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

Log Cabin

The log cabin originated in Finland. Finnish settlers arrived in Delaware in the mid-1600s and brought with them plans for the log cabin, one of the enduring symbols of the American pioneer. One of the cabins has been preserved and is on display at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover.
