Recycle Right Morgantown Announces 2022 Programs
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Recycle Right Morgantown, the city’s initiative encouraging citizens to reduce, reuse, and recycle, is excited to announce its programs for 2022. All events are free to the public and held at the City Garage located at 200 M-Tec Drive.
“With a new REAP grant, we are able to offer some really exciting programs for our community,” said Morgantown Special Projects Coordinator Vanessa Reaves. “These programs will expand recycling accessibility and reduce how much our community sends to the landfill.”
In partnership with PC Renewal, Recycle Right Morgantown will host three electronic recycling drop-off events from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. on April 2, June 18 and August 6. These events are open to all residents, businesses, non-profits, and government entities. A certificate of destruction of hard drives can be purchased for $5 in cash at the events.
Republic Services has sponsored a small electronics recycling bin located in the Public Safety Building at 300 Spruce Street. Small electronics including empty e-cigarettes and vaping pens, which contain a battery and heating element, can be recycled here. This bin is located next to the medication dispose bin in the lobby.
The first of three home composting workshops will be on April 23 from 10-11 a.m. Participants will take home a composting bin and a handout. The other workshops will be on May 21 and June 25, both from 10-11 a.m. Attendance is limited and registration is required. To sign up for one of the composting workshops, visit the Recycle Right Morgantown website.
From April until March 2023, there will be single stream recycling drop-off events on the fourth Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. These events will increase recycling access for those who do not have curbside recycling. To ensure proper recycling, download a free Recycle Right guide.
