About US

On January 1, 1989, county solid waste authorities were created and established by the West Virginia Legislature as public agencies in every county of West Virginia. The Brooke County Solid Waste Authority (BCSWA) is managed by a five-member all volunteer board of directors appointed by various county and state agencies;  two by the Brooke County Commission, one by the Northern Panhandle Soil Conservation District, one by the Department of Environmental Protection, and the fifth by the Public Service Commission.

The BCSWA is also responsible for arranging, managing, and educating the community on proper and ecologically sound disposal and/or recycling of all solid waste materials generated within Brooke County.

Duties of the solid waste authority include but are not limited to the following:
  1. Develop / Update the Brooke County Comprehensive Litter and Solid Waste Control Plan.
  2. Develop / Update the Brooke County Recycling Plan as a component of the Comprehensive Litter and Solid Waste Plan.
  3. Develop / Update a Brooke County Commercial Solid Waste Facility Siting Plan.
  4. Promote and encourage source reduction, reuse, and recycling activities.
  5. Identify and report open dumps within the county.
  6. Issue / Deny site approval permitting for commercial solid waste facilities.
  7. Coordinate public and private sector solid waste activities
  8. Implement a mandatory disposal program.
The BCSWA receives funding though tipping fees generated by landfills.  A portion of the tax that is assessed to every ton of garbage dumped in WV is collected by the Solid Waste Management Board and divided equally among all state Solid Waste Authorities.
