MCCRC will no longer be accepting GLASS

The Monongalia County Community Recycling Center has decided that we will no longer be accepting GLASS as of June 28th, 2013. The Board of Directors passed a 4 to 0 vote at the last Regular Board Meeting to discontinue accepting Glass as of July 1st, 2013. This decision is made only for the Mon. Co. Community Recycling Center, it does not affect the Single Stream or Curbside Recycling being accepted in the city of Morgantown.

    We live in Cheat Neck and must rely on your collection centers for our recycling. We have been doing so for as long as you have been doing it. We consider recycling as part of God’s will for mankind to have dominion over our environment and planet. It is good and appropriate stewardship. Until now I have applauded your efforts, but now by not accepting glass you have become part of the problem. If you are at all serious about the morality of recycling, you must find a way to continue recycling glass.

      We are currently seeking any help and/or suggestions with this matter. Unfortunately, without an annual donation upwards of $50,000.00 the MCSWA will not be able to continue accepting glass at the Mon. Co. Community Recycling Center. The Board of Directors has looked at the financial impact vs. the environmental impact of glass recycling. Our program has seen no profit from accepting glass in over ten years. With the changes in local/state recycling, our program was one of the last to still accept glass. The change of glass recycling is a statewide issue. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

    Unfortunately, the Monongalia County Solid Waste Authority will no longer be able to burden the huge financial loss that the Recycling of Glass causes the company annually. The garbage haulers will accept the glass in the regular pick-up. As far as other outlets, there are very few and even less than that are within a reasonable distance to Monongalia County. The company that we used was Bradish Glass, Inc. they are located in Greensburg, PA. You can find more information about them on their website
