New Cabot Station location for recycling center

The Restoration Station, Calhoun's recycling center, will be moving to new and expanded quarters at Cabot Station. Sue Covell said the agency has obtained the old Cabot Station property from Dominion Gas, and looks to expand recycling in the area. Covell said a 99 year lease on the pump station property was signed effective March 1.

"We are grateful to Dominion for their generosity in helping the community," said Covell. One of the projects at the new property is to develop a public access room for deliveries which will be open seven days a week.

Covell said the present operation will be moved to the new site over the next several weeks and a grand opening is being planned. The operation is currently on Mill Street in Grantsville.

"We hope to provide a number of services out of the new facility, particularly with the additional room," she said. "We'll be able to handle a lot of material there."

Covell said the annual county-wide clean-up day is planned for April 20th, with details being announced later.

Cabot Station was the site of one of the largest lamp black factories in the world in the early 1900's, founded by Godfrey L. Cabot. It was then developed as a gas compressor station for the old Hope Gas Company, and was the scene of a fatal explosion in the mid-1940's.
