Special Statement Regarding Trash Pickup

Effective Wednesday April 1st 2020, the City of Parkersburg will only remove trash that is properly placed in suitable waterproof containers, including plastic bags and trashcans.
This temporary change was decided upon as a measure to limit the potential exposure of City personnel from COVID-19 exposure.
Bulk waste goods such as furniture, appliances and the like should be held at this time. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
From Mayor Tom Joyce:
“The Public Service Commission issued a ruling (General Order 262.2) outlining the above referenced exclusion of bulk goods and only requiring the collection of properly contained waste. While The City of Parkersburg is not governed by the PSC, nor are we required to follow their guidance, I elected to proceed with the change to keep our employees safe.
My #1 priority during this pandemic has been and will be to continue to keep our employees safe; and while this change will have an impact on the aesthetics of some neighborhoods, there is nothing more important than safety.
We will make arrangements if necessary to “catch up” on bulk waste collection as soon as it is safe to do so, but for now I am asking that bulk waste be held for collection at a future date.”

Parking changes to facilitate restaurant curbside delivery

Effective immediately the City of Parkersburg is transitioning downtown parking to 15 minute free parking in the areas outlined below:

Market Street 8th-3rd
7th Street Juliana -Market

This measure is being implemented to provide easier access to downtown Parkersburg’s eateries and other businesses that have been or may be affected by COVID-19 guidelines recommendations and orders related to gatherings and congregation.

We hope this action will allow all downtown businesses to maintain limited operations within the confines of current restrictions in an efficient and effective manner.The city will reevaluate as necessary but for now this change will remain in effect indefinitely.
