If you live in the city of Huntington, you are allowed one free trash pickup per month if the load can fit into an eight-foot pickup truck.
Special pickups are reserved for large, bulky items that cannot be picked up with your weekly household garbage. Items that can be disposed include furniture, mattresses, appliances that do not contain Freon and yard waste. Prohibited items include oils, paints (unless they have been dried out), car batteries, tires, propane tanks, gas tanks and other hazardous materials.
To request a special pickup, call 304.696.5540 (press option 1 for Public Works) or use the download the free Huntington WV 311 app. City workers will assess the size of the pickup order and will contact you if a fee applies.
As another friendly reminder, weekly household garbage should not be set out for collection before 6 p.m. the night before the scheduled pickup day. Doing so prevents trash from being knocked over by animals or the wind.
