Volunteers are invited to participate in an upcoming clean-up in the desert along North Oatman and Silver Creek Roads, east of the Bullhead Parkway. The clean-up is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, at 7 am.
Those interested in helping to beautify the desert will be meeting at the northeast and southeast corners of the Bullhead Parkway and Silver Creek Road.
A lot of equipment is being provided for hauling away the trash that will be removed, but volunteers should bring along such things as gloves, a rake, or anything that can be easily carried from site to site and that would be useful in gathering debris. The City will be providing water and pizza, to those that volunteer.
There will be some removal of large items, such as tires, dumped furniture, shot-up TV’s and microwaves, etc., but much of what needs removed are smaller items, such as piles and piles of shot bullet casings from people who have done target shooting in the area but have not bothered to clean-up after themselves.
Volunteers can stay as long as they like. There is no specific commitment in time required. Every little bit of help will be appreciated. Civic-minded groups are welcome as well.
People with ATV’s are encouraged to participate, because there is a need to be able to access the wash along Silver Creek Road. Over 30 individual clean-up sites have been identified.
The Desert Clean Up is being organized through a joint effort of the City of Bullhead City, Arizona Game & Fish, Bureau of Land Management, Mohave County’s ERASE program, and Republic Services.
