Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) will assist two school districts in Sussex County to go green. The Woodbridge School District had a recycling drop-off center placed down on February 6, 2008 at both the Greenwood Elementary School and Woodbridge Middle School. In the Laurel School District, a recycling drop-off center was placed at Laurel High School. The recycling drop-off centers will provide each school with the ability to start a recycling program within their buildings.

Woodbridge School District Superintendent, Kevin Carson said, “ We are very excited about the partnership with DSWA, we believe the volume of material coming out of the schools will be significant and we will be able to contribute by not only helping the environment but by significantly reducing our contribution to the landfill.”

The single stream drop-off centers are set up to accept items such as narrow-neck plastic bottles, paperboard, aluminum, steal and empty aerosol cans, junk mail, newspaper, plastic grocery bags, and brown, green, and clear glass. A container is also set up to collect corrugated cardboard. DSWA has over 160 Recycling Drop-off Centers throughout the state, placed through voluntary sponsorships by schools, businesses, and shopping centers.
