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.
