The City of Kingman Sanitation Department provides twice weekly sanitation service to all city residents. If you are experiencing problems with your sanitation service or need to have your container repaired please call the Sanitation Department at (928) 692-3102.


Sanitation and Parking Regulations

Side Walk Accessibility

The City of Kingman would like to take this opportunity to remind city residents that sidewalks should be kept clear of any items that could create a hazard for pedestrians or keep wheelchair users from utilizing the sidewalk without interference.

Sanitation

City residents who have sanitation containers picked up at curbside should place their container at the curb just off the side walk at the edge of the street. This allows pedestrians and wheelchair users to access the sidewalk without any interference. We would also like to remind residents that containers should be placed at the edge of the road by 6 a.m. on their collection day. Containers can be put out the night before but not before 6 p.m. and should be removed from the street the day of collection.

Public Parking

City residents are also reminded that it is illegal to park vehicles on city sidewalks. The City of Kingman Police Department will cite owners of vehicles that are parked on city sidewalks.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to attempt to manage these two problems. Your cooperation will help our  sidewalks to become safer and more accessible. Please call the Kingman Police Department or City of Kingman Sanitation Department if you have any questions.

Rates

The monthly sanitation rate for a 90 gallon container or a shared 300 gallon container is $19.78. If you believe that you generate more trash than your container can handle, the City will provide you with a second 90 gallon container for an additional $19.78 per month.


Customer Responsibilities

Customers are responsible for keeping their containers clean. All trash should be bagged and tied before it is placed in the container. Container lids should be kept closed to prevent trash from blowing out onto the street.

It is the customer's responsibility to have their container at the curbside by 6:00 a.m. on the day of their pick up. "Curbside" means at the edge of the street not on the sidewalk. Containers should be placed with the arrows facing the street. Customers can roll their containers out after 6:00 p.m. the night before their scheduled pick up. It is the customer's responsibility to move the emptied 90 gallon container back onto their property the same day as their scheduled pickup. It is also the customer's responsibility to place the container in such a way that the truck can pick it up without any interference, (i.e., away from automobiles, power poles, mailboxes, etc.). Steel containers, and 300 gallon plastic containers can be serviced from the easement. 


Prohibited Items

The City Kingman will not pick up the items described below and they should not be placed into your container.

  • Hot ashes or any items that could cause combustion to sanitation containers and/or equipment
  • Construction waste
  • Rocks, dirt, or concrete
  • Large dead animals
  • Tires
  • Hazardous material substances that are toxic and could cause illness to the public or people operating and/or repairing sanitation equipment.
  • Any gasoline, benzene, naphtha, fuel oil, or other flammable or explosive liquid, solid or gas

Extra Trash

The City of Kingman offers an "extra trash" program. The Sanitation Department will come to your residence and pick up items that will not fit in your container (i.e., tree limbs, furniture, yard waste, and some construction materials). The fee for this service is $15.00 for up to five cubic yards. These items can be placed out at the edge of your street or in your alley. Extra trash requests can be placed by calling the City of Kingman Utility Department at (928) 753-5561, option 1, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or the Sanitation Department 692-3115, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. The same restrictions that apply to regular trash also apply to extra trash. In addition, the City will not pick up refrigerators or air conditioning units if the compressors are still intact; some appliance centers will remove Freon and compressors or accept whole units for a minimal charge.
