City extends landfill hours Friday and Saturday

To support the ongoing citywide storm clean-up efforts, officials of the City Environmental Department here have announced extended hours at the Logan Landfill through Wednesday.

LOGAN – To support the ongoing citywide storm clean-up efforts, Mayor Holly Daines has directed officials of the City Environmental Department to extend the hours of operation at the Logan Landfill on Friday and Saturday.

The green waste area of the landfill normally operates from 8:00 am to 5 p.m on Friday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 pm on Saturday with limited unloading from noon to 1p.m., according to city spokesperson Emily Morgan Malik.

Those hours will be extended from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Friday and Saturday to accommodate the huge volume of fallen tree limbs and other debris coming into the landfill.

Because city officials were concerned that landfill users might experience excessively long wait times to unload, Malik explains that a second green waste drop site has been opened at the landfill. Thanks to that alternative area, city officials now expect wait times to unload will now be at or less than 30 minutes.

“We appreciate the patience of residents,” Malik says, “as we are doing everything we can to get you in and out of the green waste areas as quickly as possible.

“You may consider waiting a week or two to bring in green waste loads,” she adds.

Malik also suggests that landfill users can help to expedite the clean-up process by ensuring that their green waste loads are tied down and or covered; by following the directions of flaggers guiding vehicles in the landfill; and by slowing down when entering and exiting the landfill.

The posted speed limit in the landfill is 14 mph, Malik emphasizes.

Additional information about landfill hours and operations can be obtained by calling 435-716-9792.

    Logan City should be driving trucks around and picking up all the green waste they can from the people. The city has a multimillion dollar budget from our tax revenue. Instead of a coordinated effort by the city where a few people work to pick up the green waste, EVERY person in Logan gets to wait in line for hours at the green waste dump which I’m sure will do wonders for our air quality. Oh, and then the city will take all the green waste, chop it up, and sell it back to us. Thanks Logan City! Glad my tax revenue isn’t going to waste Mayor Daines! Good thing our tax revenue is going toward the inevitable legal defense necessary to steal someone’s house via eminent domain for land to build a . . . new fire department building? Is that what eminent domain is for, Holly? Logan City is pathetic.

      It seems to me that the city is working to be very accommodating. The trees on YOUR property are your responsibility. You could go buy a chain saw and chop them up yourself but are being given an option for disposal. Really, do you think we should all be taxed so much that you never have to take care of anything yourself? Maybe they can shovel your front steps this winter too!

        Hold on, why would this cost the city anything? We already pay taxes that provide salaries and machinery for the fall and spring green waste pickup crews. You think it makes more sense for every single person in town to have to get a truck and drive down to the green waste facility and drop off their branches than for the city to fire up the green waste program twice? You’re worried about taxes for something that actually benefits us, but I imagine you don’t care about all the pointless new buildings that I am building.
