Curbside recycling a success at 2006 Delaware State Fair

Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources (DNREC) strategically placed plastic and aluminum recycling bins around the Delaware State fairgrounds.

Each night, with assistance from a group of Americorps volunteers, all of the recyclable waste from the containers was collected and shipped to a Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) recycling center. Along with the aluminum and plastic, DSWA and DNREC collected corrugated cardboard waste from the Fair and its concessionaires, attractions, and sponsors.

According to Jim Short of DNREC, approximately 252 pounds of plastic, 135 pounds of aluminum, and 7,080 pounds of cardboard were collected during the 10 day event for a total of 7,467 pounds of combined recyclable collection.
