The Blue Hen Organics Recycling Center is the first landscaping residual composting facility in Sussex County, Delaware.  The facility is permitted by DNREC to process clean, non-toxic, non-hazardous biodegradable materials such as yard waste ( grass clippings, leaves, brush),  land clearing debris, construction wood, poultry manure, and food waste.  These materials are professionally recycled into compost, topsoil, and specialty compost-based soil blends. 

The facility is open to the general public, landscaping contractors, and commercial haulers for organic residual drop off of yard waste for $30 per ton and source separated construction wood for $40/ton.   When dropping off organics, you can also purchase compost, mulch, and soils at our on-site retail store.  Our one-stop shop is quick, convenient, and cost effective, saving you time and money.  Come visit our friendly customer service team, and we'll have you out the door in minutes.  Operating hours are Monday to Friday, 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Call us at (302) 732-3211 for more information about how we can recycle your organic materials into environmentally beneficial compost.
