Recyclopedia - A Tool to Help Recycle Smarter

 From time to time, you have heard from us at the City of Lewes, reminding you which items are accepted in recycle carts and which items cannot be recycled in our single-stream recycling program. There has at times been confusion, as accepted items have changed over time.

Including non-recyclable items in your recycling cart can cause the an entire truckload to be contaminated and diverted to the landfill. In addition to increasing the cost of our trash and recycling service, this is not good for the environment.

The Delaware Recycles Program has introduced a new tool to help us to recycle smarter. It is called Recyclopedia. When you have an item and are not sure if it should be placed into your recycling or trash cart, visit and type the item in the search bar under "Recyclopedia."

Thank you for helping to for helping us to keep our recycling clean!
