- Please have your automated containers out to the curb by 7:00 am on your collection day (collection times vary & could change without warning).
- During winter months please do not place your container out for collection before 6:30 a.m. This may help prevent snowplows from tipping them over.
- As per city ordinance, please do not allow your waste containers to sit out on the street longer than 24 hours before and after waste pick-up services.
- Please bag all your garbage to help prevent litter. Especially bag plastic grocery sacks, packing peanuts, and shredded paper. Please do not bag recycling and GreenWaste materials unless it is shredded paper.
- On pickup day, please make sure the front of your containers face the street. Keep your containers 3 to 4 feet apart and away from other objects such as mailboxes, telephone poles, trees, and vehicles.
- Please do not overfill your container . Anything over 4 feet in length is too large for any of the containers. Please cut down large tree branches and boxes. You are responsible for any spillage from your waste container.
- Please do not overload your containers with bulky or heavy items such as bricks, construction materials, & appliances.
- Please do not put hot ashes or coals in your automated containers. If the containers melt you may be responsible for a replacement fee.
- Please do not put anything hazardous, flammable, or restricted in your automated containers such as: oil, car batteries, paint, TVs, or any product that is corrosive, flammable, ignitable or reactive. Bring these types of materials to our Household Hazardous Waste Facility for FREE. Call (435) 716-9777 for more details.
- Do not put glass in your curbside blue bin as it is not accepted in the blue cans. Glass is very dangerous to those that sort the materials. Please learn the types of materials for recycle.
- Please do not put garbage next to your container if it is full. If the materials are recyclable, the landfill has extra dumpsters to use free of charge; if not, regular landfill fees apply.
- Please learn what types of materials go in what bin.
- Please use your community GreenWaste bins or the weekly GreenWaste curbside service. This really helps decrease the amount of waste ending up in the landfill.
Below is a list of items and the rate they decompose with the help of environmental influences such as moisture and oxygen. Think about these materials in a landfill-mummified.

Disposable diaper…………..10-20 years
Tin can………………….....80-100 years

Dr. William Rathje was involved in what he calls the "Garbage Project" in which he found that waste was not decomposing! Click here for an article on Dr. Rathje submitted by the NY times.
Are we required to recycle? Will there be fees enforced for putting recyclables in our black garbage bin?

Please note that Dumpster Enclosures are not required by the Logan City Environmental Department. However, if you choose to build an enclosure or are required to build one, please use the following standards to design the enclosure:
Each enclosure shall provide a minimum ten-foot interior depth (minimum eleven-foot interior depth, if bollards or a curb are placed behind the dumpster) and a six-foot height. For single enclosures, with or without gates, the minimum interior opening shall be twelve-feet. For double enclosures, without gates, the minimum interior opening shall be twenty-two feet, and for double enclosures, with gates, the minimum interior opening shall be twenty-four feet.
Drawings are provided in both autocad and .pdf formats.
Other building design drawings and specs for Logan City can be found under Engineering.
If you have any questions, then please contact Alexandra Rasband at (435) 716-9756.

The City is required to monitor groundwater at the landfill in both the spring and the fall to ensure that the landfill is not contaminating the groundwater. Wells have been drilled both upgradient and downgradient of the landfill and have been monitored since 1993. For additional information regarding groundwater monitoring standards, procedures and results, please contact Alexandra Rasband at (435) 716-9756.
See what will happen to our landfill when it closes by looking at our Integrated Municipal Waste Management Campus plan developed in February 2010.
