LOGAN, W.Va. — Each year, residents of Logan County can take advantage of a series of free trash drop-offs where everyone can free themselves of junk in the garage, outbuilding or attic while making Logan County a cleaner, nicer place to be.
The Logan County Commission’s (LCC)2016 Logan County Cleanup produced staggering numbers in refuse and tire removal.
The group reports between the Man, Logan and Chapmanville cleanups, more than 6,700 tires were collected.
The total tonnage of the refuse collected between the three drop-off sites topped 1130 tons or 2.2 million pounds.
President of the LCC Danny Godby explained, “This has been an ongoing project of the LCC for the last several years. This exemplifies our commitment to garbage removal from all areas of the county as well as our commitment to preventing trash from ending up in our streams. We thank the citizens for their great effort in keeping Logan County clean. Also our citizens have removed 168 dilapidated structures without a single dime of county money. This contributes to tourism and promotes the usability of the county’s waterways. By no means are we satisfied. This will be an ongoing effort and a focused project for years to come. For the last eight to nine years, this has been a focal point for the LCC and we stand dedicated to doing anything we can to keep our county clean.”
