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. Per city ordinance Bill number 7663, we will no longer be able to accept loose material in the bins.
Numbers 1 & 2 Plastics
Examples: Water bottles, Milk jugs, Detergent
Examples: Office paper, Newspaper, Shredded paper, Magazines, Junk mail, Cardboard
Aluminum & Steel Cans
Examples: Beverages, Cans, Soup Cans, and Cat Food Cans
Items Not Accepted
Loose Material of Any Type
Numbers 3 through 7 Plastics
Examples: Plastic bags, PVC piping, Yogurt Containers, Styrofoam, Tupperware, Food Containers
