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 co-mingled together.
Currently, recycling in the City of Charleston is paused. An announcement will be made when the Raleigh County Solid Waste Authority reopens and we can take curbside again.
