Trash Overages

Additional cans are available by calling the Water Department at (740) 384-2040 or online at cityofwellston.org.

Any garbage bags outside of the 95 gallon cans are subject to a $2 per bag fee; a 2nd can is $6 per month. Our garbage truck is tied into city billing by a handheld notebook computer.

They take snapshots of all excess garbage and that is added to the standard billing. In some cases it would be cost effective to have an extra can or even two if this is the standard weekly amount if trash.

Another way to reduce garbage is to take your boxes, etc. to the recycling bins at the Solid Waste Authority Building on South New Hampshire Avenue.
