Delaware state law requires certain stores to provide plastic bag recycling programs. This applies to retail establishments of over 7,000 square feet or with three or more locations of 3,000 square feet or more in Delaware. The law also requires stores to register with DNREC to ensure that recycling programs are working.
The form on this page serves as the registration tool. Each question relates to a requirement of the law. Please complete this form once for each retail location.
State Law (7 Delaware Code, Section 6099A) requires that stores that meet certain requirements must provide in-store recycling of plastic carryout bags and must complete this form.
