Public Service Commission: All Garbage must be Bagged, Sealed to Mitigate Spread of COVID-19 During Collection

March 30, 2020

BUCKHANNON, WV: As per the directive of the Public Service Commission and in order to protect our Waste Department employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, all items placed for collection in a toter or bin MUST be bagged and tightly sealed.

The virus that causes COVID-19 can linger on surfaces for up to 72 hours, thus any exposed, unbagged debris may be harboring the virus and potentially exposing our staff during collection. Thank you for your cooperation as we fight this pandemic both globally and locally.
