Volunteers are needed to assist the Kanawha County Solid Waste Authority with its activities during America Recycles Day and West Virginia Recycles Day on Nov. 15.
The authority will distribute seed-paper bookmarks, brochures and other items at libraries in the county from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day. The authority will also be collecting used eyeglasses to donate as well.
In addition, the authority will officially launch its Recycling Ambassadors program. The program will use volunteers who will serve as "local experts" in recycling for their neighborhoods. Volunteers will also try to improve recycling participation with assistance from the authority.
At a Solid Waste Authority meeting earlier this month, Director James Young said several members of the public have already expressed interest.
Participating libraries are Charleston (main branch), Cross Lanes, Dunbar, Elk Valley, Marmet, St. Albans and South Charleston.
