The Cabell County Solid Waste Authority has searched for the best way to provide the county with a sustainable recycling option. The old drop off sites were very expensive to operate and illegal dumping made them an eyesore in parts of the county.
The new program was launched in September of 2017 thanks to help from the WV DEP and a grant that has allowed us to build secure sites that are accessible only by those who purchase “memberships”. We regret that there is a charge, but we had to develop a plan that was self-sustaining.
HOW IT WORKS
"Members” purchase passes, in the form of key fobs, that will allow them to access the recycling sites and depose of their recyclables. The sites are gated and fenced with a sophisticated system that will allows patrons access during hours of operation. Currently the Huntington site is open from 7AM to 7 PM 7 days/week. The system is also equipped with cameras that will monitor the sites 24 hours/day 7 days/week. The Cabell County Solid Waste Authority does not handle or process materials. Funds collected from the sale of fobs pay for Rumpke to haul and process all accepted items.
One Pass (key fob) per each household. Fobs cannot be shared with other households.
A full year subscription to the centralized recycling yard is $6.25/month or $75.00/year. The cost is prorated depending on the time of year you purchase your fob/pass.
Passes purchased in the month of July cost $18.75 and are valid until September 30, 2018.
Lost passes will be replaced at a charge of $10 each. Passes purchased after October will be prorated.
