A yard waste site serving Pike Creek and Hockessin will not be closing its gates as had been scheduled.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) had planned to shutter the site on June 20, but intervention by Representative Mike Smith will keep the site open – and offering a free option for residents to drop off their yard waste for recycling.

Smith worked with Senators Dave Sokola and Jack Walsh and Representatives Mike Ramone and Kim Williams to secure funding to keep the site operational for the next year.  Funding was included in the recently approved Bond Bill, which funds capital improvement projects throughout the state.

Smith says that he will continue to work on finding for a new, alternative location for the site, and that citizen calls and emails were key in getting this lifeline.
