City Offering Christmas Tree Recycling Program
-Additionally, reminding citizens of proper disposal for fireplace ashes-
KINGMAN, Ariz. – The City of Kingman will again provide a drop off place for Christmas trees. This will be for Christmas trees only. The trees need to be clean of all Christmas lights and decorations so that they can go through the wood chipper for recycling.
The designated drop off location will be at the City of Kingman Public Works Building located at 3700 E. Andy Devine Ave. The area will be well marked with signs. Trees can be dropped off seven (7) days a week from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The program runs from December 26, 2020 until February 28th 2021
PROPER DISPOSAL OF FIRE PLACE ASHES
Its that snuggle up to the fireplace time of year again! The city of Kingman is reminding area residents to not put hot ashes in their trash containers because they will melt the container and may cause fires. If a container is burnt or destroyed due to ashes that were placed inside, this is a misdemeanor punishable by law. (Ord 710, 7/5/88)
Please extinguish your fireplace ashes safely. The Kingman fire Department recommends that ashes be placed in a large galvanized metal container where they are allowed to cool for at least 48 to 72 hours. When they are completely cool they may then be placed in your trash container. For additional information, please contact the City of Kingman Sanitation Department at 928-753-7467.
