Marlinton Mayor’s Corner

Talking trash – Take it or leave it.

TRASH is always a problem.

Two weeks ago, I wrote about vacant/abandoned/dilapidated properties which really dealt with trash people leave behind.
This week, I begin by complaining about the trash people try to get rid of.

Dumpsters are for household garbage only. Last week, several dumpsters were full of items that are not allowed to be disposed of in dumpsters.

Building materials, tires, water tanks, appliances or metals cannot be disposed of in dumpsters.

When these items are found in dumpsters, the crew has to remove them and do what the owner should have done. They place the items beside the dumpsters and call the town office and ask for a special pickup for a nominal fee.

As always, thanks for your cooperation.
