City organizes cleanup day<BR>

Sick and tired of all the trash? Here's a chance to do something about it.

It's fall cleanup time in Kingman, and the city is offering a special.

For a $3 fee, the sanitation department will pick up extra trash.

In addition, work crews are being organized to collect trash.

The special service begins Monday and is only for residents of the city.

Hazardous material, tires and refrigerators are not included.

Call sanitation superintendent Ed Tapia at 757-7467 for more information about materials that can be picked up.

"We are ready and have extra staff to shorten the time to complete the special pickups," Tapia said.

The Kingman Clean City Commission will have groups picking up trash in the Hilltop area beginning at 8 a.m.

Saturday, chairwoman Francine Shell said.

Areas targeted include are along Stockton Hill Road and along Andy Devine Avenue.

Vacant lots from Beverly Avenue north along Stockton Hill Road past Airfield Avenue are scheduled for group pickup of trash.

Jon Parker will have probationers out to help.

High school students and groups are being encouraged to help.

Church congregations, service clubs and any other group can participate.

Call Kingman Chief Planner Rich Ruggles at 753-8130 for assignments and opportunities to help.

Most of the work is planned for Saturday and Sept.

30, but Ruggles said groups have scheduled other times, including Sunday.

The CCC plans and organizes a spring and fall city cleanup campaign.

The spring cleanup targeted an area downtown.

The Kingman Boys and Girls Club plans another cleanup day downtown beginning at the girls' gym on Oct.

21.

The CCC will clean its section of Route 66 in the Adopt-A-Highway state program on Oct.

8 in a section from the Kingman Police Station on Andy Devine Avenue to the Public Works building.

CCC committee member Jon Parker said the county probationers would do their section of Route 66 the same day.

If you are interested in a cleaner Kingman, organize a group or just bring yourself to one or more of the trash cleanup days.

Call 753-8130.

Shell said trash bags and tools are available by calling Ruggles at 753-8130.
