The City of Rehoboth Beach has renewed a three-year recycling contract with Blue Hen Dispose-All. The new schedule is a weekly pickup every Friday from May through September, and every other Friday from October through April. To ensure your recyclables are picked up, please place your container curbside between 6 pm Thursday evening and 7 am Friday morning. Your container must be removed from the curb before 9 pm Friday evening. Blue Hen Dispose-All is not responsible for returning to the city to collect recyclables that were not placed curbside prior to 7 am. The city’s recyclables collection program, instituted in 2006, remains free of charge including providing free containers. The change in schedule was necessary to maintain costs and services for residents. We have heard from so many citizens that recycling is important to them, and the city is committed to continuing with recycling.
