Still Time for Spring Cleanup in Ohio County
Residents of Ohio County still have several chances to take advantage of spring clean-up sites that will pop up throughout the area until May 1.
Eight sites will be available in the five days left for the events — the West Liberty Christian Church parking lot and Clearview Community Center on Saturday, the Patterson Ballfield and Bethlehem Ballfield parking lots on April 20, the Valley Grove Community Center and Triadelphia Town Building on April 24, the Wheeling Island Marina parking lot on April 27 and the Stone Church Volunteer Fire Department on May 1.
Dumpsters will be at those locations on those days from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Any Ohio County resident is welcome to use any of the sites, which are for residential use only and not for any type of businesses or industry.
The following items are not accepted: tires, car batteries, large appliances, motor oil, paint or any other potentially hazardous material. Residents are asked to not bring those items to the sites, and that no one drops off items if a dumpster is not present.
Scavenging is prohibited. Only pickup trucks and smaller trucks are allowed at the sites, and dump trucks are prohibited. Materials cannot be left on the ground and those using the sites should be prepared to show proof of Ohio County residency.
City employees and town and village volunteers will continuously monitor each site. For any questions, call the Ohio County Solid Waste Authority at 304-234-3884.
