KINGMAN — The City of Kingman is making a big change this week.
The green recycling bins located around the city will be removed. A new centralized recycling location will be constructed at Kingman Public Works, 3700 E. Andy Devine Ave. The new hours will begin on July 1. The facility will be open from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays and Sundays.
The city sanitation department has been losing money because people have been throwing unacceptable items into the green bins. Public works employees will now be on-hand to help people drop off the correct items for recycling.
Acceptable items are glass bottles, plastics #1 and #2 (no plastic bags), aluminum cans, paper and newspapers (no magazines or junk mail), cardboard, steel, aluminum and tin cans.
For more information about the new recycling system, contact City of Kingman Sanitation Superintendent Ed Tapia at 928-692-3102.
