Announcements – 4/1/2020

– Effective immediately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Elkins Waste Services is changing how they pick up residential trash for the safety of their workers. All trash must be bagged and placed in an Elkins Waste Services cart or a suitable can that can be lifted by their employees. They will not collect any items setting outside of the can or on the ground. They are suspending curbside bulky item collections and all “spring cleanups” at this time. Curbside recycling customers in Russell and Flatwoods, please continue to follow the in-mold lid instructions on the provided cart for recycling.

— The leadership of Healing Our Nation Prayer Rally has cancelled the Healing Our Nation Community Bible Giveaway 2020, scheduled for the Memorial Day parade, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

— The Lawrence County Museum is indefinitely delaying opening until the ban on large groups is lifted by the state. The spring tea is also cancelled.
