Fayetteville to begin collecting recyclables again on Monday

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Many communities are starting to take recyclables again, and now Fayetteville joins that list.

The town rolled out their plan to bring that back which will start on Monday after the months-long hiatus due to COVID-19. 

“We’re going to have bins, or trailers with the different bins in it, at Walmart. We’re going to have a guy there available from 10 to 2 and he can help load and sort that and everything at that location,” Town Superintendent Matt Diederich said. 

At later dates, they will be placing trailers at Studio B and Ben Franklin.

The town as itching to get this program back as they have been hearing from residents who kept track of their recycling all along as it has started to really pile up in their homes. 

“I know there’s some people that have been so diligent about saving their recycling and that’s awesome, because we’re all about preserving our Earth and making it a cleaner and better place, so I just think it’s great that we’re all so ready for the recycling to be back,” Mayor Sharon Cruikshank said. 

If you plan to come out on Monday with your saved up materials it is important to know what you can bring. 

“So they can bring cardboard, paper, office paper, newspaper, magazines and aluminum cans at this time,” Diederich said. “And so the plastic that we normally take in a separate bin will not be back until August. So we’ll roll that back out the first week of August, and so just hold onto the plastic for right now.” 

The trailers will be set up in the Walmart parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday.
