Saturday.

The area is bounded by Gordon Drive on the north, Bank Street on the west, Andy Devine Avenue on the east and Airway Avenue on the south.

Dumpsters will be placed on Gordon Drive at the La Senita School, city planner Rich Ruggles said.

Door hangers have been placed at every residence in the area to inform property owners of the clean up effort, the placement of dumpsters and the kinds of items that can be placed in dumpsters.

Trash containers can accept yard waste, metal, plastic and wood.

Check the labels on the dumpsters to get items in the right place.

A limited number of tires, inoperable refrigerators, air conditioners and inoperable automobiles can be scheduled for pick up from area residences.

The service is first come-first served and requires a phone call to the city planning office between 8 a.m.

and 5 p.m.

Inoperable vehicles can be picked up at no cost to the property owner if arrangements are made in advance.

The vehicle pick up must be scheduled by the owner or be located on the owners property.

The CCC schedules clean ups in specific neighborhoods throughout the year and encourages people all over Kingman to participate in their own areas or to volunteer in the target area.
