About the Residential Recycling Program
The program began in October 1993. Materials are picked up curbside and taken to a recycling center in Brooke County, W.Va. Last year, Wheeling recycled 125 tons of materials.
Can I participate?
The curbside recycling program serves all neighborhoods within city limits, pick-up alternating red bins one week and blue bins the next (see recycling calendar below).
To recycle, simply place the materials listed below in the bin, and set bin on the front curb on trash day every other week according to the schedule.
Guidelines for cardboard:
Do I have to pay extra for recycling pick-up?
No. The recycling fee is already included within your water bill and residents can utilize multiple bins at no additional cost.
What if I don’t have a bin yet, or want another bin?
Residents who need a bin or an extra bin can purchase one for $13.60 by calling the City’s Finance Dept. at 304-234-3653 or by visiting Suite 115 in the City-County Building, 1500 Chapline Street.
Additionally, the Ohio County Solid Waste Authority can give information on recycling outside of the city. For information or inquiries, please call (304) 234-3884.
