Work is moving ahead on a county-wide recycling program, according to Sue Covell, Director of Calhoun's Solid Waste Authority. Covell is making plans to submit grant applications to the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources, which could amount to $200,000 to launch the project.

Covell and SWA Board vice chairperson Michele Smith plan to have the application done by July 31. They met last night with Calhoun Commissioners David Barr and Bob Weaver at the Restoration Station. Barr said it is likely the Commission will support the project, which would be a joint venture between the county, the town of Grantsville and the Calhoun Solid Waste Authority.

Some of the items which could be included in a county-wide program include glass (all colors), plastics, steel cans, cardboard, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, scrap steel, aluminum cans, non-ferrous metals, car batteries and other specialty items.

Covell said re-cycling is important to preserving the quality of life in our rural area.

The county-wide cleanup is next Saturday, April 21st from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Grantsville parking lot, with electronics and working appliances being dropped at Restoration Station. Information 354-7786.
