Cabell County Solid Waste Authority

The Cabell County Commission recently allotted funding to support recycling efforts throughout the county. Consequently, the "pay for service" program set up last year 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.

New patrons simply need to complete the following registration form and submit. You are given the choice to use either the Virginia Avenue site in Huntington or the Depot Street Site in Barboursville. Please note: the Depot Street Site is only accessible on Saturdays and Wednesdays 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. The Huntington site is accessible 7AM to 7PM 7 days/week. 

Once submitted, your fob will be ready in a week. Fobs  for the Huntington site can be picked up at the Virginia Avenue Office during posted office hours. Fobs for the Barboursville site can be picked up at the Depot Street location on Saturdays. You will receive a list of acceptable items when you pick up your fob. Lost fobs will be replaced at a cost of $10.00.

Both sites utilize a sophisticated camera system 24 hours/day seven days/week. Any patron that disposes of garbage at the recycling sites will have their fob deactivated.
