With the landfill in Logan County closing in less than a year, citizens who utilize the free dump days twice a month may be wondering where they will take their trash when the doors to the landfill finally swing closed.
Well, according to Scott Waste Services, citizens will be able to continue hauling their trash twice a month for free, only to a different location.
Pete Reckard, District Manager for Scott Waste Services attended the Tuesday, Aug. 12 Logan County Fiscal Court meeting telling about services Scott will offer once the landfill closes in July 2015. Reckard reminded the court when Scott Waste entered into a unified solid waste contract with the county and four cities in Aug. 2013, part of the deal was to provide two free dump days for the citizens, just as offered by the landfill.
The last bid provides disposal two days a month for non-commercial users. Which days those will be will be decided when the landfill closes. Currently, citizens can take their trash to free dump days on the first and third Saturdays of the month. Reckard said this could be set the same in the future if desired.
Reckard says after the landfill closes it will allow one pickup truck full or small trailer full of trash to be dumped free twice per month at the transfer station in South Union. Anything larger will be charged accordingly.
Scott Waste Service is currently the provider in the unincorporated areas of the county and the cities of Adairville, Auburn, Lewisburg and Russellville. The service also offers curbside co-mingling recycling.
