Since 1999, the Recycling Coalition of WV, Inc. has been advocating recycling and encouraging West Virginians to make purchasing decisions based on recycled content or the ability to recycle the material once the product has completed its useful life.

We coordinate activities like the Re-Fashion show, provide incentive prizes for adults signing a pledge to support recycling and sponsor youth and teacher contests.
