The City of Logansport posted an image on its Facebook page on Monday, Oct. 26 outlining some of the procedures that will be in place as Republic Services, which handles trash and recycling for the city, prepares for the new city-wide biweekly recycling program.

The graphic the city shared is below.

Here’s what the graphic above says:

City of Logansport Recycle and Bulk Item Program

Residential Recycle Collection Program: Republic Services and the City of Logansport will shift all single-family residents to an every-other-week fully carted single stream recycling collection service. Recycling carts will be served with the same type of equipment and manner as residential solid waste carts. All single-family customers have been issued a blue 95-gallon wheeled recycle cart with a light blue lid. These recycle carts will be set out alongside the trash cart on your designated recycle collection route day. The current 18-gallon recycle bins will no longer be collected at the curb.


A resident scanned and shared this version of the map provided by Republics Services. You should be able to save the image and enlarge it. The map shows the day of the week that recycling will be collected and whether that area will be on the A week or B week collection schedule.

So, you should find your home on the map, then check the calendar to see when your recycling will be collected.

Bulk/Heavy & Larger Items Pick-Up Program: At a designated time each month, residents will be allowed to set out extra bags of trash or large items at no additional cost to the residents. Residents will be allowed to set out up to 2 items per month at the designated time. If you still need additional items collected that cannot fit inside your trash cart there are two additional prepaid programs at your disposal.

  • Prepaid Extra Trash Bags Tags/Stickers (extra trash bags not to exceed 30-gallon [tall kitchen bag] outside the 96-gallon cart with lid closed) $2.00 per sticker to be set out during regular trash collection day.
  • Bulk/Heavy Items – Defined as larger pieces of furniture, mattresses, box springs, chairs, sofas, rolls of carpet and padding, and non-Freon household appliances not to exceed 40 lbs. $25 per item prepaid by resident by contacting Republic Services directly to pre-schedule pickup of such items.

According to the City of Logansport Facebook page, these are the bulk collection pickup calendars for 2020 and 2021, as well as notes about the methodology for the monthly schedule and info about items that qualify for the 2 free Bulk Collection items.

The schedule will be as follows:

• Monday Pickup will be the 3rd Monday of each month

• Tuesday Pickup will be the 4th Tuesday of each month

• Wednesday Pickup will be the 2nd Wednesday of each month

• Thursday Pickup will be the 2nd Thursday of each month

• Friday Pickup will be the 1st Friday of each month

If any issues arise, the mayor’s office can be reached at (574) 753-2551
