Fencing Around Dumpsters Coming in Parkersburg?

PARKERSBURG, WV (WTAP)-- Should Parkersburg require fences around trash dumpsters ?

That was the point most vigorously debated Tuesday evening in the form of a new ordinance to force property owners and businesses to police their dumpsters.

Many council persons weighed in on the topic, suggestion that there is already a measure on the books but not adequately enforced, to keep dumpster sites clean.

Other suggest that the problem is "Dumpster Diving" creating a mess, and proposing locks on fences to keep "scavengers" out.

In the end, the ordinance passed its first reading without a major revision.
