Fall Clean-Up Program Concluding

During the past several weekends, Marshall County residents have had the opportunity to dispose of unwanted items as part of the Fall Clean-Up program sponsored by the Marshall County Commission and the Marshall County Solid Waste Authority.

This coming weekend residents will have a final opportunity to get rid of even more items, some of which were not accepted at the dumpster sites which were available throughout the county, as Recycling Days will be held Friday in Cameron, and Saturday in Moundsville.

This will mark the first time for a Electronics Recycling Day in Cameron. It will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of the former Cameron High School. It is being co-sponsored by Electronics Recycling Services of Bellaire and the Marshall County Solid Waste Authority. There will be no charge for Marshall County residents to dispose of computers, networking equipment such as monitors, printers, hubs, switches and cables, telecommunications equipment, fax machines, typewriters, cell phones, copiers without toner cartridges, telephone systems, VCRs and DVD players, cassette players, televisions, electronic games and video games, consoles, MP3 players and selected radios, among others.

The other recycling site will be from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday in the north parking lot of Monarch Stadium. At this recycling site all types of electronics will be accepted, including computers and televisions, the limit per household for televisions being two.

There will also be the opportunity to dispose of white goods to include refrigerators, ranges, air conditioners, humidifiers, dehumidifiers and washers/dryers.

The third item to be accepted at the Moundsville location will be tires, which can also include rims. There is a limit of 10 tires per person. As to the size of tires they are to be 17 inches and smaller.

Also, Saturday dumpsters will be at the parking lot of the former Cameron High School from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. It will be the last dumpster site this fall.

Those bringing items to be recycled at both Cameron and Moundsville will be asked to show either their state driver’s license, West Virginia identification or property tax receipt.
