“Wellston City Offices to be closed in observance of the Christmas Holidays”

Wellston City Offices will be closed Thursday, December 24th, 2020 and Friday December 25th, 2020 in observance of the Christmas Holidays. Garbage pick-up for the City of Wellston for December 24th will be picked up on Wednesday December 23rd along with regular Wednesday’s trash and for December 25th, trash will be picked up on Monday, December 28th along with Monday’s trash.

In observance of New Year’s Day, Friday January 1st, trash will be picked up on Thursday, December 31st, along with regular trash route. Please have the garbage out early as they will be running double routes. Thanks for your cooperation.

Trash Overages!

Additional cans are available by calling the Water Dept. 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 the City Billing by a handheld Notebook computer. They take snap shots of all excess Garbage that is added to the standard billing. In cases as shown below it would be much more 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 Building on New Hampshire.
