Recycling Center has New Lease

The Kanawha County Recycling Center has signed a new 5-year lease. The center on Slack Street closed in March because of structural problems, and Tuesday the Solid Waste Authority approved a lease with West Virginia Recycling that will allow the company to take over the center and pay the Solid Waste Authority $5.50 for every ton of recycling that is processed there. The takeover brings with it renovation plans for the Slack Street facilty and some new equipment. The current employees at the Slack Street center can apply for jobs with West Virginia Recycling.
