Waste Diversion and Recycling

Only 10% of Wilmingtonā€™s residents currently recycle. KNHB and the New Hanover County Department of Environmental Management are working together to bring recycling awareness to citizens all across the county. We also work closely with New Hanover County to expand recycling programs to more communities each year.
