We all like to have a good time and entertain friends and family. Your neighbors include families, professionals, students and the elderly, so keep in mind that loud noise makes it hard for these folks to sleep, work, study and relax.
Morgantown’s laws related to noise prohibit:
- the playing of radios, car stereos, TVs, musical instruments or any similar device at loud and unreasonable levels from 11:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m.
- yelling, shouting or creating a racket in public areas from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 a.m.
- the use of lawn equipment, snowblowers and other loud power tools in residential areas from 9:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m.
- any loud or continued unnecessary or unusual noise which annoys, disturbs, injures or endangers the comfort, health, peace or safety of others at any time.
A clean neighborhood equals happy neighbors. These are some of the City of Morgantown’s ordinances regarding trash: where to put it and when!
- All garbage must be stored in a solid waste container to the side or rear of a residence.
- Containers are not to be stored in front yards or on front porches.
- Solid waste containers and recycling bins may be placed at their pick-up site no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day before trash day and all empty containers must be removed by 9:00 p.m. the day of collection.
Reminder: in Wiles Hill-Highland Park, garbage and recycling should be set out after 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening prior to Thursday morning’s collection. Refuse is collected a day late following select holidays and inclement weather.

Curbside recycling is picked up every week in Morgantown along with your trash. Single stream recycling means you don’t have to sort anything. If you would like to recycle but don’t have a toter, the folks at Republic Services will provide one for you.

Wiles Hill-Highland Park is an affordable, accessible neighborhood centrally located within the City of Morgantown. A number of homes are available for rent among other owner-occupied residences. Neighbors are generally welcoming to everyone and ask for renters help in preserving the residential character of the neighborhood for the benefit of all who call this special place home.
Renters are encouraged to confirm any rental property is officially registered with the City of Morgantown Code Enforcement to ensure it has been properly inspected to avoid possible code problems. While some properties may have been grandfathered over time, neighbors generally are aware that current code for new rentals permits no more than two unrelated persons to live in a residence and suspected violations are likely to be reported to city officials for the safety of those who live there as well as neighbors.
