    Spring Clean Up

    Our annual Spring Cleanup will be held the week of May 16 through May 20. This is for our residential garbage customers only, no businesses please.

    We CANNOT collect the following:

  • Construction materials-including but not limited to lumber, drywall, brick, block, etc
  • Televisions, computers, computer components

    As a result of the anticipated increases by the Morgantown Utility Board, the Town of Star City will also be increasing the rate for both water and sewer. Part of the sewer rate increase will be active following a 45 day waiting period, with the rest of the sewer increase and the entire water increase to be instituted on July 1, 2016.

    Gentle Reminders

    Garbage Collection: limit of 4 thirty gallon bags per week, less than thirty pounds per bag, secured in a can with a lid. Please have garbage out for collection as early in the morning as possible.

    Grass clippings are not permitted in the street or in storm drains!

    When writing checks to pay utility bills, please print clearly and legibly. We've had several unreadable checks in the past few months, which delays the amount paid being posted to the correct account.

    Using a cell phone not equipped as hands-free while driving is a primary offense and you WILL be stopped and cited for it. This includes holding the phone for any reason, including while using speaker phone, or texting. Arrive alive, don't text and drive!
