Charleston homeowners should expect to receive garbage bag vouchers soon

CHARLESTON, WV -

Eligible Charleston homeowners should expect to receive their garbage bag vouchers soon. WasteZero, the company coordinating garbage bag vouchers and distribution, started its bulk mailing process to residents this week according to a news release from the City of Charleston.

The vouchers for bags can be redeemed at the following locations during regular business hours starting March 1:

  • Foodland in Kanawha City
  • Drug Emporium in Kanawha City
  • Drug Emporium on Patrick Street
  • Purple Onion in the Capitol Market

Vouchers that were mailed in September expired on January 31 and can no longer be redeemed.

Residents should expect to receive their vouchers over the course of the next week or two. Once you receive your vouchers, you may pick up the bags any day of the week during regular store hours. Retailers will keep the bags in stock until these vouchers expire on July 31.

Unlike previous years, the City of Charleston no longer keeps any inventory of the garbage bags on hand. Also, residents are now able to purchase additional bags at participating retailers.

Anyone who has not received their voucher by March 14, should call the City Collector's Office at 304-348-8024.
