— The deadline for the Winter Crisis program is May 1. The Ironton and Lawrence County Area CAO began the program on Nov. 1, 2019. The agency can assist with a main heating source cost through a one-time payment to a utility company, wood, coal, or some type of bottled gas. In order to process your application quickly and efficiently, please be prepared to provide all needed documents. Keep in mind that other requirements may be asked for.

• Proof of citizenship for all household members, example: birth certificate, voter registration card, passport, etc.

• Birthdates and Social Security cards for each household member

• Heating bill/bulk fuel account number

• Electric bill with account number

• If you are a disabled client, please provide documentation of disability.

– 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 in Russell and Flatwoods will continue.
