Notice To All Pocahontas County Property Owners Concerning Asbestos Demolition Materials

The Solid Waste Authority is reminding property owners of their responsibilities to have their structures checked for asbestos before demolishing any buildings. Pocahontas County Landfill is not authorized to accept any asbestos; therefore, a certification that construction or demolition materials are free of any asbestos will be required for all loads delivered to the landfill. According to the WV Department of Environmental Protection’s website, the only two landfills in the state that can accept asbestos are Ham Sanitary Landfill in Monroe County and Meadowfill Landfill in Harrison County. For more information about asbestos requirements and how to have your property checked, please visit the DEP’s website at: https://dep.wv.gov/DAQ/CANDE/Pages/AsbestosRemovalandDemolition.aspx.
