Curbside Recycling in Logan County Ohio

Logan County enjoys three curbside recycling programs (Bellefontaine, West Liberty, Lake Township), each combined with curbside trash pick-up services on a PAYT (pay-as-you-throw) basis. 

BELLEFONTAINE

Bellefontaine Uses Blue Recycling Bins & BagsThe City of Bellefontaine has a well established PAYT (pay-as-you-throw) trash collection service combined with FREE recycling.

Republic Waste Services (Cherokee Run Landfill) collects both trash and recycled materials. Recycled materials are delivered to the Logan County Solid Waste District processing facility on S. Detroit St. in Bellefontaine.

Rules

All residents must participate in the PAYT trash collection program.  Recycling participation is voluntary.

7:00 AM Curbside Deadline.  Trash and recycle materials are to be at curbside by 7:00 a.m. on collection day. 

Regulation Trash Cans.  Trash must be contained in regulation trash can(s) with authorizing sticker(s) attached, or in a trash totter, or in blue PAYT trash bags.  

Excess trash.  If more trash is generated in any week than can be contained in authorized cans, it must be disposed of in blue PAYT bags.

  • Blue PAYT bags can be purchased from grocery stores.  Residents have the numerous options for trash services including using only blue PAYT bags.

Bulk Item Disposal.  Lounge chairs, mattresses, appliances, etc. can be disposed of at the curbside by purchasing a Bulk Item tag from the Bellefontaine Utility Office and attaching the tag to the item. 

  • Bulk item tags cost $7.50 or $15.00 depending on the item size.
  • Call 592-3561 for detailed information.

Need a Recycling Bin?  A blue recycling bin can be picked up at the Bellefontaine Utility Office.  Each residence should ideally have two of these:

  • one for paper products
  • one for all other recyclable materials.

Violations of the rules, such as placing trash at the curbside in black or white plastic bags, subjects the resident to a citation to Court with fines levied up to a $500 maximum.
