Task Force to address Kanawha County recycling
Kanawha County is diving deeper into an effort to save the recycling program. A new task force will study the Kanawha County Solid Waste Authority's finances, and then the goal will be to come up with a plan to keep recycling going. Five months ago the Solid Waste Authority's governing board voted to shut down the Slack Street Recycling Center in Charleston over safety issues. That has since re-opened as a drop off point. Between five and ten members will be chosen for the task force, and they'll aim to come up with a new plan for the county's recycling efforts within 45 days.
