Mayor Purzycki and Council Member Freel Invite Citizens to Recycle Hazardous Waste, Electronic Items and Paper Shredding Materials on Saturday, October 13 at Frawley Stadiu

Mayor Michael S. Purzycki and City Council Member Charles “Bud” Freel today invited citizens to the Wilmington Riverfront on Saturday, October 13, 2018 to dispose of their hazardous materials and electronic items and to securely shred their paper materials. The disposal and recycling event is held each year in October in Wilmington near Frawley Stadium (801 S. Madison St.), home of the Wilmington Blue Rocks. The October 13 event, held rain or shine, will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The City, through its Department of Public Works, will again partner with the Delaware Solid Waste Authority, United Way of Delaware and the AFL-CIO Community Services to present this popular drive-through disposal event which attracts hundreds of citizens from throughout the greater Wilmington and New Castle County area.

The Mayor and Council Member today thanked the citizen volunteers who assist the professional disposal and recycling experts, as they provide a quick and easy way to dispose of electronic goods and toxic and dangerous materials that could otherwise end up as environmental hazards.

There is a limit of two boxes of paper materials per household for the shredding service. Examples of the types of hazardous or electronic waste items that can be discarded are listed on the flyer that is attached as part of this news release. Please share the flyer with others and recycle with us on Saturday, October 13.
