Dover Trucking, Inc. has been recycling for a number of years under a “Dual Stream” system. Dual stream means that we’ve had to separate the glass, plastic and tin from the paper and cardboard when recycling. Single Stream Recycling will allow us to put ALL recyclable materials into one container. Beginning on April 1, 2013, all customers who recycle with us can put paper, glass, plastic, tin and flattened cardboard all together in one container. No more separating. Recycling will be easier and more convenient for you. Single Stream increases recycling by decreasing the trash we throw away.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Easier for customers to recycle
  • Increases recycling, decreases trash
  • Utilizes new collection vehicle that holds more material than our current collection vehicle
  • Truck efficiency = less trips to our facility
