Danielle Johnson of Hurricane was dropping off her recycling, including glass, at the recycling center on Monday afternoon. She said that it's difficult for her to find recycling facilities that accept a variety of materials -- such as No.1 and No. 2 plastics -- near her home.
"It's very hard in Hurricane to recycle," she said.
West Virginia Recycling Services Plant Supervisor Darrell Taylor said that the glass containers have already needed to be emptied several times, and there has also been a significant number of people taking away the crushed glass.
The recycling center on Slack Street is resuming glass collection at a time when other areas are ending or changing their glass collection services. The Monongalia County Solid Waste Authority, for example, is ending glass collection at its recycling centers beginning June 28.
Glass will only be a drop-off item and will not be available for curbside pickup because of liability issues, Young said.
Since resuming glass collection, the West Virginia Recycling Services facility on Slack Street accepts brown, clear and green glass; No. 1 and No. 2 plastics; cardboard, office paper, newspaper and magazines; aluminum cans and steel cans; and other metals.
