The Kingman City Council sympathizes with those who’ve complained about recycling bins being placed in their neighborhood more than one month ago. Residents contend traffic, noise, flies and smells associated with the bright green dumpsters are disrupting their lives in the area of Southern Avenue and Pawnee Park.

A September 6 council vote directed staff to explore placement options that would move the bins further from homes. Consideration of alternate locations could come at the September 20 Council meeting.
