Solid Waste Coordinator Nathan Cockrill reminds Logan County citizens the free dump days provided by Scott Waste Services, LLC will be resuming this Saturday, May, 23. Although the service, which is offered the second and fourth Saturdays of the month, will continue, there will be a few changes those who use it will have to abide by.

“You must wear a mask or other facial covering when at the transfer station,” said Cockrill. “You will be turned away without a mask.”

Keeping social distancing of at least six feet from other customers is another rule when dumping material out of your vehicle. Don’t come if you have been recently ill or are a part of a vulnerable population. And always remember to secure your load with a tarp.

The two free dump days held each month for Logan County residents are part of an interlocal agreement between the county, four cities, and Scott Waste Management. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, dump days were temporarily postponed the month of April and the beginning of May to help protect Scott employees as well as slow the spread of the virus.

Scott Waste owns and operates solid waste transfer stations across North America. Solid waste transfer station operations represent an efficient, environmentally friendly methodology to receive, process, compact, and transfer solid waste to larger vehicles for transport via truck, rail or barge to company-owned or operated landfills, as well as third party landfills.

Saturday’s free dump day will be held from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Scott Waste Transfer Station, 55 Pleasant View Drive, Auburn. You will line up, wait your turn to be weighed and when given the signal, you can proceed to the dumping area. After dumping, you will be directed across thew scale once again before leaving. Get there early, as the lines will be long.
