About the Monongalia County Solid Waste Authority
The Monongalia County Solid Waste Authority (MCSWA) was created by the West Virginia Legislature on January 1, 1989, as a public agency in accordance with WV Code §22C-4-3. The Legislative intent was to protect the public health and welfare with a comprehensive program of solid waste collection, processing, recycling, and disposal, managed for the most part, on the local level. Responsibilities of the authorities include but are not limited to acquisition, construction of and/or operation of solid waste facilities; local and/or regional solid waste planning; siting approval of commercial solid waste facilities; coordinating public education and awareness; solid waste and litter control project coordination/ management and many other things consistent with WV Code §22C-4.
The purpose of the MCSWA is to protect the public health and welfare by providing for a comprehensive program of solid waste collection, processing, recycling, and disposal. Further, the MCSWA exists to establish programs based on source reduction, recycling, reuse, material recovery and lastly, landfilling.

These board members are appointed by different agencies which include: the Secretary of the WV Department of Environmental Protection, the Monongalia County Commission, the board of supervisors for the Monongahela Conservation District, and the chairman of the Public Service Commission.
