The Polly Drummond Hill Road yard waste demonstration drop-off site will remain open at least through Jan. 2013; subject to approval by the General Assembly, to ease a transition to a new private-public yard waste site.
The new site will be staffed and operated by Holland Mulch in partnership with DNREC and is expected to open for yard waste in late January. The site at 39 Brookhill Drive, Newark, will accept Christmas trees only for recycling starting Dec. 26.
Holland Mulch has contractually agreed to accept yard waste from Delaware residents free of charge for five years at the new site.
