The City of Kingman Sanitation Department and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality are pleased to announce changes to Kingman’s EZ Recycling Drop Program. Beginning on July 1, 2019, the seven locations will be centralized into one convenient, managed location at the City of Kingman Public Works Department, 3700 E. Andy Devine Avenue. Hours for the new drop off location are:
- 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday
- 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Saturday
Constant issues with contamination and the cost of recycling has caused the City of Kingman to make these changes to the Kingman EZ Recycling Drop Program.
