With the recent burn ban issued in the area, the City of Wellman is reminding residents they can purchase bags for yard waste at City Hall. City Administrator Mark Baker says they have bags for fifty cents each or a package of five for two-fifty.

He says even without the ban, they encourage residents to use the bags, because the smoke can effect neighbors and with the hilly areas in Wellman sometimes the smoke can settle in and linger. Yard waste bags are picked up by volunteers every Monday.
