Recycling is one of the easiest ways to cut back and reduce waste and keep Del Rio clean. It preserves valuable environmental resources such as land, water, and air for future generations. The City of Del Rio Recycle Center operates a voluntary drop off recycling facility located at 1409 E. Gibbs. It is open Monday thru Friday from 7:30-5:30 and on Saturdays from 8:00-12:00. Bins located at the Center are labeled to make it easy to deposit your items.
The Recycling Center strives to provide the public education and resources by distributing recycling information at community events, issuing media releases and recycling tips, broadcasting information on Channel 34, and developing an educational program for children.
The Recycle Center offers a variety of recycling services to the citizens and businesses of Del Rio. Services include household and office recycling, electronic recycling for residents and small businesses with less than 15 employees, and document destruction services for $1.00 per pound. A recycle trailer is also located at WalMart and the Del Rio High School on designated days. The recycle trailer schedule and a detailed list of what can be recycled at the City of Del Rio Recycle Center can be found at www.cityofdelrio.com.
Those of you who attended DRHCC’s Speed Networking event earlier this year were amazed at the decorative centerpieces created by utilizing beautiful empty wine bottle from the Recycling Center.
