Garbage Service Rules & Regulations

As a garbage hauler in the state of West Virginia, Barrackville Garbage Service is regulated by the Public Service Commission (PSC).  The PSC has a set of rules and regulations that we must adhere to. In addition to the regulations from the PSC, we too have rules that we set forth to ensure the health and safety of our employees.

  • Regular weekly trash service is for a single household, unless other arrangements have been made with Barrackville Garbage Service. Do Not allow anyone to put their trash with yours as that is considered a theft of services.

Trash Bags
  • Limit 5 bags per week
  • Bag weight – NO more than 20 lbs. per bag
