MORGANTOWN — The Monongalia County Commission decided during its regular meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 11, to take a new approach to the way recyclables are collected.
According to information provided by Commission President Tom Bloom, the commission will begin “Saturday Recycling Days,” starting Saturday, Feb. 21.
Bloom said the commission is currently considering one of three locations to hold four-hour sessions — 7 a.m.-11 a.m. — on the first and third Saturday of each month. During these times county residents could drop all their recyclable products.
Personnel will be on site to ensure only recyclables are dropped and, possibly, ensure county residency.
Republic Services will have several roll-off trailers available. At the end of the four-hour period, the trailers will be hauled away.
For those unable to make the Saturday drop-off, the Westover City Hall drop-off site will remain open.
While Bloom said Republic has yet to quote a price for the service, he said he has been assured it will be less than the $3,000 the county is paying now each month.
Bloom said the goal is for the Monongalia County Solid Waste Authority to take control of this program by July 1.
The recycling bins currently at the Hornbeck Road Wal-Mart will be removed by the end of the week, Bloom said.
If you have any further questions please contact the County Commission for the latest update.
The MCSWA board of directors voted Jan. 21, 2015 to cease collection of recyclable materials at the satellite sites around the county, the Monongalia County Commission has chosen to take over the management of this service and has worked out an agreement with Republic Services Inc.
The Mon County Commission passed a series of motions at an emergency meeting on Friday, Jan. 23, to address the Mon County Solid Waste Authority (SWA)’s cessation of recycling services.
The Mon. County Commission passed a motion to enter into an agreement with Republic Services to collect recycling at the following sites — Wal-Mart off Grafton Rd., Pierpont Centre near the Huntington Bank and Mountaineer Mall.
Commissioner Tom Bloom said that recycling won’t resume until Feb. 1 and asks that recyclable goods not be taken to the collection sites until then.
The Monongalia County Commission had an emergency meeting today, at this meeting they were able to say that they will be working with Republic Services to establish at least 4 satellite Recycling Sites. These sites will probably be located in some of the sites that we were using, as long as the property owners are in agreement. This is great news for the county residents, and I am excited to see the county moving forward.
