If you have been doing spring cleaning and are looking for ways to get rid of larger items, then this UDel Recycle Program is for you. UDel Is Hosting A Recycle Program This Weekend Called UDon’t Need It.

Everyone else will be required to pay $10, but hey it’s a small price to pay to get rid of those items you’ve had stored in the basement for years.

You can empty a pick-up truck or carload for the $10 fee. Larger trucks or trailers will be required to pay $20.
