City and county officials request all residents take their trash off the streets and bring it back in until after Monday, Feb. 23. Animals have already begun breaking into trash bags and strewing trash all over.

Updates on trash pickup will be published as it becomes available.

Mayor David Thompson and Larry Young of the Barbourville Street Department spent the better part of Friday collecting house bagged trash left curbside in order to keep animals from tearing into the trash bags, of which there have already been several complaints.The trash they collect is being stockpiled temporarily at the Street Dept until Mills Garbage can resume regular trash pickup next week.
