PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Due to severe winter weather, the City of Parkersburg Sanitation Department will not collect trash on Thursday, Jan. 31, but will pick up trash on Friday and Saturday instead.

Parkersburg Public Works Director Everett Shears says Parkersburg Sanitation decided to not operate on Thursday to protect its crew members and equipment from the extreme cold and wind chill expected that day.

Instead, Thursday's trash route will run on Friday, Feb. 1, and Friday's trash route will run on Saturday, Feb. 2.
