Roane County Recycling Center
Public Hours: Thursdays and Fridays, from 8am to 5pm, and the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month, from 10am to 2pm. Collection trailers are available for after hours drop off (do not use while center is open).
Location: 318 Oak Drive, Spencer, WV. From town, Oak Drive is about 1.5 miles up WV-14, first right after Hospital Drive, then about 0.8 miles down to the end of Oak Drive, past Harris Oil.
Materials Accepted: Cardboard, plastic, glass, steel & bi-metal cans, aluminum cans, glass, paper, shredded paper, books, electronics, and scrap metal. Reuse materials accepted include most types of still-useful stuff which would be a waste to throw away, including stuff needing minor repairs - but no clothing, food, or toxic materials. Serviceable computers, printers, electrics, tools, equipment, and similarly useful items will be refurbished then returned to use in the local community.
All materials must be clean, and in particular won't stink after a couple days of summer heat. If you bring in recyclable or reuse material you are welcome to take something from the reuse shelves & book bins.
Solid Waste Authority Monthly Meetings
Solid Waste Authority meetings are open to the public and held on the second Monday of each month at 2:00pm at the Roane County Recycling Center. Send correspondence to P.O. Box 713, Spencer, WV, 25276. Agendas will be posted at the Center, and a few places around town, roughly a week before each meeting.
