Recycling Center

Recycling Center

Our center at 1230 Morgantown Road in Russellville is open for Logan County residents. Paper, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, old mail, and cardboard are all welcome. Please sort these items in separate bags. It does not accept TVs, wood, furniture, glass, other trash, or out-of-county materials.

Hours are Monday through Friday 8 am to 2:30 pm. After hours or if no one is available, convenient drop-off bins are located outside the north side of our center. We also have periodic electronic recycling days at the Center. Call the waste coordinator for details.

Thank you for thinking about tomorrow and recycling.

Trash for Cash

Trash for CashThere is plenty of litter to be cleaned up in scenic Logan County. If you are with a non-profit group (charity, school, church, etc.), you can make a difference. We invite you to pick up litter on Logan County roads in our Trash for Cash program. The rate is $100 for every mile of trash picked up, up to 5 miles, and $500. Supplies such as gloves, bags, vests, and safety signs will be given for the effort.

If that extra cash could be useful or if questions, contact the solid waste department.
