DNREC says Delaware’s Solid Waste Recycling Law, also known as the Universal Recycling Law, requires all waste service providers to separate containers for recyclables, to ensure that these items are not put into landfills, or the incinerator. DNREC says they documented solid waste violations by Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. in Wilmington, Lewes, and Selbyville at various times during 2015, which apparently include combining trash and recyclables from separate collection containers into one truck compartment, or by Waste Management not providing curbside recycling service as required by law. … Officials say the Order includes a penalty of $40,000, and $3,660 in cost recovery for the Department. The Secretary’s Order can be found on the DNREC website.
