Auburn Transfer Station reopens after fire, to accept Logan trash again

Cleanup from the fire which burned most of last week at the Waste Transfer Station at South Union is far enough along that the station reopened Wednesday and is going to accept trash from Logan Countians the next two Saturday mornings.

After starting Monday evening, June 3, the fire was finally completely extinguished last Friday. An engineer told Scott Waste that there was no significant structural damage to the building, so they made some minor repairs and resumed operation.

Since there was no free dump day last Saturday, the station will have a free dump day this Saturday, June 15, from 8 a.m. to noon, as well as the regularly scheduled free dump day on June 22

“They will take most garbage. They don't take tires, paint that hasn't been dried out, Freon-containing appliances, car batteries, and chemicals, but they will take electronics and construction debris, as well as furniture,” says Logan County Solid Waste Coordinator Nathan Cockrill. 

“There is no bag requirement per say. The material is recommended to be tarped, but it is not required. So if furniture is uncovered, it is OK. But littering out the back of vehicles heading to the station is a problem we have to work on.”
