Two of the three Logan County district barns will be ending services for public dumpsters.
Residents who live in district two and three of the unincorporated areas of the county, will no longer have the dumpster services after the end of the month.
District 2 County Commissioner Mike Pearson says an expiring grant and the economy have played a role in the service discontinuing.
“Our rolloff was possible through a grant from the ODEQ (Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality) which runs out at the end of this month,” Pearson said in a Facebook comment post. ” The downturn in fuel consumption and oil gross production will not allow for the district to continue this service.”
District 3 officials said they are hopeful to be able to hold semi-annual dumpster events in the future, if funding allows.
District 1 County Commissioner Marven Goodman said his district will continue to provide limited residential dumpster along with wood and rubble pile disposal services for District 1 private citizens.
“This service is being provided as a limited district wide residential service and is closed to all business operations such as roofing, yard cleanup, landscape maintenance, etc.,” Goodman said.
The hours of operation are from 7:30 – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (holidays excepted) at 2315 SW 29th Street. Goodman added citizens will need to call in advance and stop at the County Barn Office prior to disposing of any materials.
Positive proof of District 1 residency is required with a either a drivers licence, or state issued ID with current address.
