Delaware community launches curbside recycling.
"We are proud to offer FirstRecycle to Delaware residents," Tri-State Waste Solutions President Kevin Shegog says. "Only by recycling can we save important natural resources and protect our environment for future generations."
Tri-State Waste Solutions provides residents with 65-gallon containers for their recyclable paper, plastic, aluminum and cardboard. The recyclables are collected weekly.
According to Joe Delmar, a spokesman for Tri-State Waste Solutions, recycled materials are taken to state-run Delaware Solid Waste Authority facilities, which currently do not accept glass. Tri-State hopes that the facilities will be able to handle glass in the next few months, however, at which point it may be added to the curbside recycling program.
"The goal of FirstRecycle is to make recycling as easy as possible," Shegog says. "It is our hope more people will recycle enabling us to alleviate some of the problems facing Delaware's overburdened landfills."
