Members of the Bethany Beach Landowners Association should have all received the July 2014 Newsletter. One item of interest for Owners who are not BBLA members was information about Recycling. See the Town Code 486-20 for the details. There are requirements there that I had forgotten. Section 486-21 on Yard Waste follows it.
