Recycling/Garbage Pick-up and Garbage Bag Locations in Charleston, WV

Our New Program!

We have been asked by the Raleigh County Landfill/Recycling Center (where we take our material) to keep our recycling as dry as possible. Therefore we are asking Charleston residents to place all their recycling material in clear plastic bags and seal them. These bags can be placed in bins and left at the curb just as you have always done and they can be comingled together as you are currently doing but, per city ordinance Bill number 7663 we will no longer be able to accept loose material in the bins.
