The Delaware County Office of Sustainability, in partnership with Delaware County Council, the Delaware County Solid Waste Authority, and the Delaware County Bureau of Elections will be holding Election Campaign Sign Recycling Drop Offs on Friday, November 17, and Saturday, November 18 at Rose Tree Park in Media.
Delaware County residents, candidates and committees are encouraged to collect their yard signs and signs from public areas and take advantage of the free recycling event that eliminates tons of recyclable materials from entering the waste stream. During the last two election cycles, Delaware County has diverted over 3,000 pounds of plastic and an additional 3,000 pounds of metal from the waste stream.
“The recycling of election signs is one way for our residents to divert waste from landfills—saving taxpayers’ dollars and protecting the environment,” said Delaware County Office of Sustainability Director Francine Locke. “There is no “away” when we throw something in the trash—it must go somewhere, so recycling the plastic, metal, and cardboard from these signs is one way to go green and Sustain Delco.”
All campaign signs (plastic-coated, cardboard, and vinyl signs) and accompanying metal stands will be accepted free-of-charge, and all collected materials will be recycled. Please note that signs do NOT need to be dismantled for collection.
