We are passing along this notice from the GreenWorks group at Davis and Elkins College:

As foretold in the newspaper and on the radio…it’s that time of year again – e-cycling by the GreenWorks! student sustainability group!

In partnership with the Randolph County Solid Waste Authority, GreenWorks!, Sustainability Studies, Environmental Science students, and Center for Sustainability studies staff will be collecting electronics THIS Saturday, April 26th, 9am-4pm at the Elkins industrial yard next to Elkins Builder’s Supply and across from Elkins Recycling. Please bring your items for recycling at this time, earlier is better as the collection will end when the 53’ trailer is full (have filled every year for 5 years!). The collection is free of charge but donations to the GreenWorks! group in any amount will be accepted in support of future student projects (planned for this month is an LED outdoor security lighting install on campus, next fall they plan additional solar panels in partnership with Student Assembly).

Hope to see you there! Volunteers are welcome – please reply to [<mcclainw@dewv.edu>] if you wish to help out for any amount of time on the 26th. Lunch will be provided.

City of Elkins water distribution employees are repairing a hydrant on 13th Street. Water will most likely be off on 13th Street and Cole Avenue for a short while. No boil-water advisories are anticipated at this time.

The City of Elkins will begin curb-side Yard Waste Collection on Monday, April 14th; monthly collection will then be held on the FIRST Tuesday of each month on the following dates this year: May 6th, June 3rd, July 1st, August 5th, and September 2nd. Yard waste will be collected as quickly as possible but it varies from month-to-month as to how much time it takes in each ward – due to this fact, residents of all wards are being asked to have their yard waste out by the curb by 5:30 a.m. on the above-stated collection dates; if we don’t get it that day, we will get it in the next day or two – depending on how much time the current collection is taking.

Acceptable items include: grass, tree, & shrub trimmings; vegetative landscaping materials; leaves & hay; plant debris; branches & brush up to 2” in diameter and 8’ in length tied with a string or twine in manageable bundles (no wires or plastic ties).

Unacceptable items include: plastics; treated wood; construction/demolition debris; household trash; animal waste; non-organic material; yard waste containing concrete, rocks, sod, or dirt; anything over 50 pounds.

Residents may also take Yard Waste to the Waste Water Collection & Transmission Department (located at 31 Jones Drive / 304-636-2058) Mondays – Fridays from 6 a.m. – 2 p.m.
