A free community clean up and fire fuel reduction day was recently sponsored by Coconino County for the residents of the Kaibab Estates. Approximately 75 residents participated in the two-day event, which resulted in 80 cubic yards of trash and pine needles being hauled away by the county.
The clean up offered residents an opportunity to remove debris, eliminate rodent nesting areas and reduce the threat of fire by eliminating potential fire hazards.
Coconino county solid waste supervisor Jim Loper said he was pleased with the turnout, considering the 100-degree heat.
“Residents seemed to appreciate our efforts and were grateful we brought the ‘Clean Sweep’ program,” he said.
Anyone who wants more information can call Loper at (520) 779-6630.Coconino County Fair deadlines soon
