The final weekend for the annual Logan County Cleanup, sponsored by the Logan County Commission, will be held beginning Thursday in Logan. The free dump sites were open in Chapmanville on Aug. 6-8 and at Man on Aug. 13-15.

Logan County Administrator Rocky Adkins said trash collection at the Chapmanville and Man collection sites was on par with previous years.

“We’re about online to where we were last year,” Adkins said.

Adkins said residents can bring just about anything that is littering their area to the site for disposal.

“There’s e-cleanup for electronics, the DEP is there accepting the tires and then there is the garbage, which is basically just about anything you want to bring except for hazardous materials,” Adkins said.

Adkins said the e-cleanup evolved because of regulations, but has become an asset to the cleanup.

“The community can get rid of their old TVs because your typical pickup won’t pick those up,” Adkins said. “A lot of people are telling us that is a great side of it as well as the garbage itself.”

The Environmental Protection Agency describes Household Hazardous Waste as “Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be household hazardous waste (HHW). Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients, require special care when you dispose of them.”

Adkins said anything that helps the community is a plus.

“The commission thinks this is one of the best projects we do on an annual basis,” Adkins said. “People see we are taking their tax dollars and putting them back into something that helps the whole community.”

Again, residents can dump their cleanup waste from Thursday to Saturday, Aug. 20-22, at the old K-City location in Ellis Addition. Hours are from 8 a.m.-7 p.m.
