Decision on Slack Recycling Center could come soon

A new lease would turn Charleston's Slack Street recycling center over to West Virginia Recycling Services. There was no decision this week, but the final details could be worked out at a December 4th meeting of the Kanawha Solid Waste Authority. As the deal stands now, the authority would take $5.50 from every ton of recycling that makes its way through the center. The building that houses the Slack Street recycling center is more than one hundred years old, and was closed last March when combustible dust was found, among other structural issues. From a public drop off site, the recyclables are currently hauled off to Raleigh and Jackson counties for processing.
