The City supports waste reduction and recycling. Residents are encouraged to practice responsible waste management by:
Single-family homes have the option of curbside pick-up by city staff which also includes yard waste collection. Some apartments and condominiums also have special containers in their building for recycling. All residents can utilize a recycling drop-off site located in the Sims Recycling Center, 65 London Road, Delaware, as well as plastic bag drop-off containers at local grocery stores.The City uses a commingled recycling system; meaning items need only be separated into two groupings: Fiber and Non-fiber.
FIBER PRODUCTS include newsprint, phone books/magazines, paperboard/chipboard, corrugated cardboard and all types of paper.
NON-FIBER PRODUCTS include plastics No. 1 and No. 2, glass, aluminum, bimetal (tin and steel), aluminum foil and aluminum pie plates.
