Project A.L.E.R.T 

(Assistance in lowering environmental rural toxins)

The Marion County Solid Waste Authority’s Project A.L.E.R.T., funded by a 2013 USDA Rural Development Grant is organizing “Train the Trainer” sessions to promote awareness for proper disposal of expired, unwanted, and unused medications including controlled substances and proper disposal of household hazardous waste, including small farm waste. . 

The purpose of these meetings is to form a roundtable of stakeholders to educate, discuss, and create a handbook for proper disposal of household waste.  If interested please call 304-367-0065 or send email to

You are cordially invited to participate along with other Conversations Districts, Extension offices, County and City Officials, Hospice Centers, Assisted Living Facilities, Law Enforcement, Small Businesses, Fire Departments,  Pharmacies, Schools, Parent Groups, Watershed Groups, Water Utility Boards, Small farms, Public Service Districts, the public, and many others. Together we can educate the public to promote water quality, public health, and economic development by increasing proper disposal of household hazardous waste, prevent toddler and elder death from accidental drug overdose, and provide a safe and healthy community for our citizens. 


We collected 2755 tires and 6760 lbs. of rims at our annual Tire Day on August 24. Totals are down from last year but that means the program is working and people are safely getting rid of their tires instead of stock pilling or throwing them over the hill. Thank you for recycling!


At our E-Cycling Event held July 27th, we collected 67,747 pounds of electronics that may have ended up in the landfill or dumped in our creeks or something. Please continue to recycle. 


Our recycling bin previously located on 250 past the Barrackville turnoff has been moved to Barrackville Post Office. This new site as well as North Marion and Novellis, along with our other sites are open to the public. For questions please call Bobbi at 304-825-1976. 


Effective July 1, 2013 our office will move to our new trailer at our future recycling center. 1532 Helen's Run Road, Farmington, WV 26571  Also our phone and fax changed to 304-825-1976 and 304-825-1977 for the fax.
