WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR GARBAGE:

Garbage Hauling Information

West Virginia Code §22C-4-10 mandates that each household or business must do one of the following:

  1. Subscribe to, pay for, and use garbage service, or
  2. Provide proof that they have properly disposed of their garbage at an approved solid waste facility EVERY THIRTY (30) DAYS. *

* If you choose option 2 above, please save your receipts from the solid waste facility.  You may need the receipts to use as proof of proper disposal.

There are 5 solid waste haulers certified by the WV Public Commission to operate in Monongalia County.  

  1. Republic Services 304-366-8900 or 304-296-3636 or 304-368-7777
  2. D & J Sanitation 304-278-7930
  3. Main Sanitation 304-599-2046 or 304-599-6850
  4. Chissy’s Recycling and Solid Waste 304-432-8266
  5. Mountain State Sanitation 866-679-2776

In addition, some municipalities have internal solid waste departments.  They are:

  • City of Westover 304-296-6860
  • Town of Star City 304-599-3407
  • Town of Granville 304-599-5080

Please call your hauler for information on proper participation with regard to placement of trash cans and dumpsters.

If your service includes the use of a dumpster, nothing left outside the dumpster will be taken by the hauler.  All items must be inside the dumpster.  It is against the law to place trash in a dumpster unless the dumpster is on your account.  Unauthorized use of a garbage dumpster is a violation of WV Code §61-3-53 and is punishable by fines.  Please call the WV DNR at 304-825-6787 to report unauthorized use of a dumpster.    http://www.legis.state.wv.us/wvcode/ChapterEntire.cfm?chap=61&art=3&section=53

Solid Waste haulers and the general public are able to take loads of household trash and bulky goods to the Mountaineer Transfer Station at 2130 Rail St. in the Morgantown Industrial Park.  The MCSWA does NOT operate, own, or staff the transfer station. It is privately owned by Republic Services Inc.  It is open Monday through Friday 5:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  and Saturdays 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.  If you have questions about the transfer station, please call (304) 366-8900 or (304) 368-7777.

All open vehicles transporting solid waste MUST be covered with a tarp, or secured in another manner, from the point of origin to the point of destination or delivery at the Transfer Station.  Transporting unsecred, uncovered solid waste in an open vehicle without a tarp is a violation WV Code §17C-17-6(a&b) and is punishable by fines. http://www.legis.state.wv.us/wvcode/ChapterEntire.cfm?chap=17c&art=17&section=6

****To file a complaint about solid waste hauler, please call the WV Public Service Commision at 1-800-344-5113 or 304-340-0496 and ask to speak with Bill Flenner or 304-340-0760 and ask to speak with Steve Kaz.  You can also access the official complaint form online at: http://www.psc.state.wv.us/Forms/InteractiveFormalComplaint042314.pdf

Most haulers off the bulky goods pickup service once per month and require a courtesy call to schedule items to be picked up.  Please call your garbage hauler for their bulky goods schedule information.  Please note that municipal solid waste departments are exempt from the bulky goods mandate.  If you live in Star City, Westover or Granville please call the municipal office to inquire about municipal bulky goods disposal.  The City of Morgantown contracts it solid waste hauling out to a private company.  Please call the company: currently Republic Services Inc.  304-366-8900 for their bulky goods schedule information.

DISPOSAL OF LIQUIDS:

RECYCLING AT HOME: IT’S AS EASY AS 1-2-3

Step 1: Drop-off or Curbside

Call your trash provider to find out if you have curbside or drop-off recycling.

If you have curbside, find out your trash company’s recycling schedule.

If you have drop-off recycling, find the nearest recycling drop-off site.

Here are a few of the sites in the county:

WalMart Supercenter

215 Four H Camp Rd.

Morgantown, WV 26508

*verify information at http://www.moncountyrecycling.com/

Every Saturday

Excluding Holidays and 5th Saturdays

7 am to 11 am

 

Westover City Building

500 DuPont Rd.

Westover, WV 26501

Monday through Friday

7 am to 3:30 pm

Residential use only.

WESTERN MON COUNTY RECYCLING

Mason Dixon Historical Park

69 Buckeye Rd.

Core, WV 26541

Arnettsville Community Association

4120 Fairmont Rd.

Morgantown, WV 26501

Drop-off recycling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
These sites are serviced by the Marion County Solid Waste Authority and accept source-separated recycling only. Citizens must sort their recyclables into separate bins at the drop-off sites.

 

Step 2:  Set up a Home Recycling Station

A home recycling station makes it easy to sort your recyclables.  It can be as simple as a cardboard box near your trashcan or as elaborate as store-bought stacking tubs or cans.  The most important thing is that your home recycling station is convenient for everyone in the household to use and easy for users to access and handle.

Step 3:  Drop-0ff or Put-out Your Recycling

If your trash provider collects your recycling at the curb, put it out on the proper collection day.  Contact your trash provider to get your recycling pick-up schedule.  

If you have drop-off recycling, make it a part of your weekly or monthly schedule.  Some people like to make it a family event on the weekend.  Others prefer to drop off their recycling on the way to or from work, the grocery store or running errands.  

RECYCLING IS A FUN FAMILY ACTIVITY

Recycling shapes lifelong attitudes, values and behavior towards the local and global environment.  Kids can learn to be active community members and responsible citizens.

 

RECYCLING:

How-to’s for the recycling drop-off locations:

Recycling works best when the materials are separated and clean.  Please do not mix trash in with any of your recyclable materials.  Please do not leave your commodities in bags or boxes when you place them in the recycling containers.

Get to know the following RECYCLING symbols:

International     Steel Recycling Aluminum

Plastics 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7

***Examples of commodities accepted at drop-off locations and pick-up at curbside:
