Did you know that the City of Parkersburg operates the largest recycling center by a municipality in the State of West Virginia?
The City of Parkersburg operates a curbside recycling program for free to any interested citizen within the corporate limits of Parkersburg. Recycle materials are picked up 5 days a week and is provided in conjunction with refuse pick-ups. Our facility would not be possible without grant funds provided by West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan Grant Program.
This year, the City of Parkersburg was awarded a grant in the amount of $3,000 from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection REAP Litter Control Grant. This matching grant will be used to purchase new 14-Gallon Recycling Bins for the city-wide recycling program.
If you are interested in starting to recycle and live within the City of Parkersburg, please contact the Sanitation Department at 304-424-8572 to get a recycling bin and start recycling today!
