Welcome to the City of New Castle

Date Posted: Friday, May 8th, 2015

Step back in time and experience the charm and beauty of colonial New Castle. Walk the cobblestone streets and enjoy the historic sites of this riverfront community. Historic New Castle, Delaware is located just 10 minutes south of downtown Wilmington with easy access from I-95 and I-295. Overlooking the Delaware River, Historic New Castle is the oldest continuously occupied town in the Delaware Valley.

What Can I Recycle?

Date Posted: Friday, April 16th, 2021

Recyclopedia What • Where • How DE.gov/recycling  To reduce the confusion on what is acceptable to recycle in Delaware, DNREC’s Delaware Recycles program has launched a new search tool called Recyclopedia.  The online tool allows anyone to easily search for an item that is no longer needed and provides a solution to properly dispose of it.  Why is this tool so important? Residents and visitors often hear national and regional messaging that just doesn’t apply in Delaware.  DNREC has one recycling program for the entire state that is the same whether at home, at school, or at work.  All items placed in recycling carts and dumpsters are taken to one facility in Delaware to be sorted and sent to market to be made into something new.  The more residents recycle only acceptable items, the smoother and faster this process works.
