Marion County Recycling Center is partially back in business


FARMINGTON, W.Va. – The Marion County Recycling Center in Farmington has opened their recycling sites on located across the counties on Monday, after a month of closure.

The primary location in Farmington has been open the entire time, but now some of the locations have also started to open back up to public. With opening, the sites may look a little different because of implementing social distancing protocols the best they can.

The locations now back up and running are:

  • Main Facility on Ida Hill in Farmington
  • Barrackville Post Office
  • Monongah Town Hall
  • East Marion Park, behind Visitor’s Center, off the Gateway Connector
  • Toothman and Sowers Ford in Whitehall
  • Fairview Dollar Story
  • Arnettsville Public Library on Route 19 in Monongalia County

Not all sites are open because of the inability to follow social distancing recommendation. Sites remaining closed as of right now are as followed:

  • Paw Paw Fairgrounds
  • North Marion High School
  • Novelis on Speedway
  • Worthington

The Mason Dixon Park in Monongalia County will not be reopened in the foreseeable future.

“Now we feel a lot better about it. I’ve been getting phone calls all day from people all over the counties, asking ‘are we back in business,'” said Director Tony Golden. “People say they have garages full of this stuff, and we’re happy that they’ve held on to it and not thrown it in the landfill.”
