If you have come to any of our events in the past year, you might have met one of our interns, Nakul Satyendra, featured in WVU’s Meet a 2015 Grad. Our interns and volunteers make Marion County a wonderful place to live and recycle. Marion County Solid Waste Authority is an official preceptorship for WVU Public Health interns that are required to experience working for a public or community organization. Congratulations to our interns, Nakul Satyendra and Tyger Kirk, who are graduating this semester.
Come celebrate Earth Day all year long by getting involved with the Marion County Recycling & Litter Control Task Force.
Our next meeting will be Friday, May 1st at 11:30 a.m. at the Marion County Recycling Facility main office. A light lunch will be provided.
YOU make Marion County a great place to live and Recycle!

West Virginia is experiencing flood warnings. Most people don’t think of the impact their trash has during flood events.
Please check our How to Dispose of Everything Handbook (Left Hand Side Bar) if you have questions about how store or dispose items that might be carried away during flooding.
