LOGAN – City officials are continuing to facilitate ongoing clean-up efforts from the unseasonably early winter storm of Oct. 11-12.

Their latest effort is extending operating hours of the green waste site at the Logan Landfill from 8 a.m.to 7 p.m. through Wednesday, according to city spokesperson Emily Morgan Malik.

Those hours are being extended to accommodate the huge volume of fallen tree limbs and other debris coming into the landfill in the wake of the unusual storm.

After Wednesday, Malik said that city officials would evaluate the volume of traffic coming into the landfill to determine if additional measures are needed.

In the meantime, Malik said that the green waste site at the landfill will be open for 11-hour days, weather permitting. An attendant will be on-hand during those hours.

After 7 p.m., the green waste site will still be available for residents to off-load debris, but no attendant will be on duty.

“Residents should keep in mind that the green waste site can become very muddy in rainy weather,” Malik warned. “So please use caution when no attendant is on site after dark.”

City work crews have also positioned dumpsters for green waste at Lundstrom Park (1600 North, 1350 West), north of the Little League ball field; Merlin Olsen Park (300 East Center St.), in the 300 East parking area; Adams Park (550 North, 500 East), on the north side of the park along 600 North; and Jens Johansen Park (850 East, 100 North), in the parking lot along 100 North.

Malik added that the city has also created a green waste drop site at Willow Park (450 West, 700 South) in the parking lot of the Sports Complex (Quad).

Malik suggested 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 emphasized.

Logan officials are also thanking residents for their patience as city work crews continue to clean up local streets and sidewalks.

    No one is going to rent a truck and trailer to bring green waste to the city so they can sell it back to us. If the city wants the branches for green waste, start the green waste pickup early, like should have happened last Wednesday. I guess Holly Daines is too worried about getting re-elected and endorsing city council candidates to do what makes sense.

    I would like to thank Logan City for their quick response in collecting the huge pile of tree limbs and branches that the good gentlemen and ladies of the LDS Hollyhock Ward helped my parents to clear from our backyard. It seems likely that due to the extreme damage of the snowstorm, the city’s efforts to clean up all of the homes that were affected will take a bit of time. I’m very grateful for the city’s willingness to assist homeowners in clearing up their property. Thank you!
