The city of Charleston has exhausted its supply of black trash bags except at one retail distribution location and is completely out of clear recycling bags, city officials said.
City officials said more bags, however, should arrive Monday night or early Tuesday.
The only location with black bags currently is the Foodland at 5003 MacCorkle Avenue in Kanawha City.
A new distribution method for bags was introduced recently by the city. Previously, garbage and recycling bags were available for pickup in either the city collector’s office or city manager’s office. Those options are no longer available. Free garbage and recycling bags have been provided to residents at designated retail locations in the city. Residents who received their coupons for the bags in the mail could redeem those coupons at participating stores whenever the stores are open for business.
In addition to the Foodland in Kanawha City, other designated retail locations where garbage bags have been picked up are:
* The Purple Onion, 800 Smith St.
* Drug Emporium, 5101 MacCorkle Avenue SE
* Drug Emporium, 1603 Kanawha Blvd. W
* F.M. Pile Hardware - 1625 Washington Street W.
