If you live outside Cabell County you will still be able to participate.

Patrons will be charged $50.00/ year for the service and will be prorated based on time of signup.
The Cabell County Commission allotted funding to support the recycling effort during the 2018-2019 program year. Consequently, the "pay for service" program set up in 2017-2018 will only require a $5.00 processing fee to participate. Fees are used to cover the expenses associated with the fob. If you are a current fob/pass holder, you do not need to complete this form nor will you be required to pay the $5.00 fee. We are still working on arrangements regarding funding for the 2019-2020 program year.
New patrons simply need to complete a registration form at the Virginia Avenue Recycling Office in Huntington during office hours.
