Curbside yard waste pick-up no longer offered

As a result of discussion with the Region III office of the US Environmental Protection Agency, the City of Elkins has been advised by the EPA that our obligation for the 5 year yard waste project under the Consent Decree signed by the City in 2011 has been satisfied.

While we recognize that the curbside yard waste pick-up has proven to be a popular service offered by the City, the burden on the City’s resources can no longer be sustained. Therefore the City will no longer be able to offer curbside pick-up of yard waste.

However, we realize that offering City residents a means for disposal of yard waste material has significant benefits, so we intend to keep our receiving area open in its current location at 31 Jones Drive.
