NEW!!! Bus reimbursement grant


Delaware’s Universal Recycling Grant and Low Interest Loan Program has funds to assist schools in sending students from one grade level on a field trip to Delaware Solid Waste Authority’s Environmental Education Center at 1101 Lambson Lane New Castle, DE 19709.  The purpose of the grant is to help children understand how the recycling process works.  The Center is located near the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where all the single stream recyclable items in Delaware are sorted so the material can be sold and made into something new.  Students will learn how this is done as well as the environmental and economic benefits of recycling.
