Kanawha County deals with pressed recycling budget

The Kanawha County Solid Waste Authority is still trying to figure out how to get beyond a cash crunch at the recycling center. There is money in an escrow account set up after the landfill in Cross Lanes was closed in the 1990s, but the state won't release the money - a quarter of a million dollars - until 2018. Efforts now seem to be toward privatizing the county recycling program.
