Start a Winning Streak!
Recycle at the Ballpark and at Home!
You’re no longer a recycling rookie,
⬇️Time to go pro by recycling at home⬇️
First, check with your local waste team leader!
While Kent County’s Recycling Center sorts and processes recycling from some of the surrounding counties, we rely on waste leaders from those counties to know which waste haulers provide curbside services, where recycling drop-offs are located, and what can be recycled where you live.
If you’re from outside of Kent County, please support your local recycling program to keep it as cost effective, efficient, low in emissions as possible and the demand for recycling in your community high!
