Is the Greenbrier Valley Solid Waste Company part of the Greenbrier County Solid Waste Authority? Their names are so similar. I thought they were the same until a friend said they were not. ~Confused

Dear Confused,

Your friend is correct, although the two are often confused. The Greenbrier VALLEY Solid Waste Company, which is the trash hauler for Greenbrier County, is a privately-owned business. The Greenbrier COUNTY Solid Waste Authority is an agency of the state of WV, governed by a Board of Directors. The Board meets every third Tuesday at the Recycling Center in Ronceverte and welcomes guests.
