Merry Christmas everyone...

Just got the family moved into our new house in Grafton during last weekends snow storm. Being as everything has been so hectic I haven't had a chance to figure out where I can get rid of some household garbage here in Grafton ro Taylor County.

Anyone out there that can shed some light on this for me before Monday would be great. I have a few large bags I need to get rid of that are filling my kitchen.

Thanks,
Robert

Welcome to Grafton!!

Well, there's the weekly garbage pick up. I don't know where in Grafton you are but they'll usually pick up pretty much anything you can put on the curb. From April to October you can call them for larger items and they'll come out and pick them up for a fee, I think that's $35. If you've got a truck and can haul it yourself there is a place out on Turner Rd. called Refuse Control Systems Incorporated. They charge per truck load, I think it's somewhere between $30-$40. Their number is (304) 265-3013. I think they're closed on the weekends but give 'em a call to find out when they're open, what with the holidays and all.

Hope this helps and glad to have you here!

Joe in Grafton

Thanks for the info. I had read where there was a pickup service but I cannot find the days listed anywhere. I am up on W. Washington St in Fetterman just above the GO Mart. Any idea where I can get the days for my area outside of normal business hours? Just trying to plan ahead.

I am used to being able to find most of what I need on the net but given the area, it did not surprise me not to find much info.

Loving the area so far. Of course, I had to pick the big snow storm weekend to try and get moved in. THe wife is seeing our property, without being white, for the first time. So I am getting bombarded with lots of questions.

We live down on Beech St. (close to the dam) and they normally pick up on Thursday here (except right now, Holidays). But that doesn't help you much. All I can suggest is to watch for when your neighbors put their's out.

Finding info online for Grafton/Taylor Co. can be impossible. I imagine it's a matter of saving money and resources but neither the City or the County have much of a net presence. The County Clerk's Office still uses typewriters and the Assessor's Office has a punch card system from the 50's. But hey, they work and I'm not complaining (well, except for the fact that none of the Gov. offices can take debit cards and I never remember my checkbook).

Yeah, we got dumped on, not a good time to move (or anything else). Where did you move from?

Moved in from Florida. I am originally from Virginia and had traveled to Fairmont, where I currently work, many times on business. My wife grew up in Florida so this has been a real change for her. However, with the exception of the snow she is beginning to like it. I love the friendliness of the people and the quietness of the area. Even though I get road noise from 50, it is still a lot better than where I was in S. FL.

Florida, that would be a big change, especially this time of year. We moved out here about 11 years ago from southern California. That was a major change too but overall we really enjoy it out here.
