City commission plans cleanup

The city's roving dumpster will be available for household trash at Centennial Park on the Burbank Street side from 8 a.m.

to 2 p.m.

Saturday.

Kingman City Planner Rich Ruggles said the monthly program is not for commercial trash.

Members of the Soroptimist Club have surveyed users of the dumpster in past months.

The largest portion of trash has been yard debris with the oncoming spring.

In January, 68 of the 100 people surveyed said they live within the city limits.

Of the remaining 32 people, 29 were from North Kingman, two were from Walnut Creek (Oatman Road area) and one from Golden Valley.

The survey has been taken each month as the Kingman Clean City Commission gathers data before asking Mohave County to assist with the roving dumpster program.

Besides yard debris and household trash, residents can bring appliances, recyclable materials and auto parts.

Junk vehicles will be accepted during the spring cleanup scheduled for April 17 downtown.

The roving dumpster will be at the Powerhouse Visitor Center, and a section of the downtown area will be designated for neighborhood cleanup.

The Kingman Clean City Commission will discuss plans for the April 17 cleanup downtown during a Thursday meeting.

The annual spring cleanup is being coordinated with the national Great American Cleanup, sponsored by Keep America Beautiful.

The Kingman Clean City Commission is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and of Arizona Clean and Beautiful.

A specific section of the downtown area will be selected for the April project.

The Keep America Beautiful has offered funds to local schools for projects to mark Earth Day on April 22.

A deadline for entries is March 31.

Information about an Earth Day project is available from Janet Watson at 753-3499 or Atia Khan at 753-7147.
