KINGWOOD -\u00a0 The Preston County Solid Waste Authority Board is still trying to claim more than $40,000 in unclaimed property being held by the State Treasurer's Office for more than two years.\r\nThe problem is that the treasurer\u2019s office maintains the authority can\u2019t provide adequate documentation. Over the years, the volunteer organization has changed addresses.\r\n\u201cI've tried several different addresses and have been told it\u2019s not the right one.\u00a0 Even though they know who I am, they can't give me the correct address,\u201d Don Smith, who represents the county commission on the board, said.\r\nSmith has been working since 2017 to get the money released. It is from fines paid in magistrate court and Department of Environmental Protection landfill tipping fees. The state does not dispute that the money belongs to the authority, only that the address it is being given is wrong.\r\n\r\nIn other business, Smith said he is applying for a $25,000 grant offered by the State\u00a0 Solid Waste Management Board.\u00a0 He said one\u00a0\u00a0 item that could be purchased if the grant is approved will be a new dump trailer for the litter control officer.\r\nAnother item discussed was recycling bins that could be used by both solid waste and other county organizations.\u00a0 Smith asked board members to recommend other possible items at the next meeting. The grant must be submitted by April 30, he said.\r\n\r\nCounty Litter Control Officer Jay Sowers told board members the Reedsville recycling site\u00a0\u00a0 is closed until further notice.\r\nIn November, the Mount Vernon Climbers 4-H Club, which had manned the once monthly recycling events on behalf of the authority for more than 20 years, decided to stop volunteering there to pursue other service projects.\r\nSowers said he recently cleaned up 10 bags of garbage at the site and found a name in one of the bags. He\u00a0 said the incident resulted in a ticket.\r\nSowers said those who previously went to the Reedsville\u00a0 site can bring their recyclables to the Kingwood\u00a0 recycling center, down the hill from Child\u2019s Feed at the former Penmarva building, 48 Jacobs Lane. Bins outside are available 24\/7.
