Shelton Sanitation, Inc. has announced it has suspended collection on its routes until further notice. As posted on its Facebook page and on its website, the suspension is due to the extreme cold and treacherous road conditions.

The company said on its website that efforts to collect trash on Feb. 15 had resulted in the arms of its trash trucks freezing, preventing the vehicles from picking up the cans. In addition, road conditions were very hazardous.

Shelton Sanitation Inc. provides service to all of Clay and Greene counties (with the exception of the city of Paragould) and the town of Sedgwick in Lawrence County. Shelton Sanitation Inc. also provides roll-off services for construction and other jobs.
