Ark City shifting to four day sanitation schedule this week

The City of Arkansas City will shift to a four-day sanitation schedule this week due to the closure of all City offices April 2 for Good Friday, a City “floating holiday.” The F Street Limb Disposal and Compost Site will be closed on April 2-3 and will reopen April 5. However, the joint Recycling Operations Center in Strother Field will maintain normal hours April 2-3. All of Wednesday’s route and part of Thursday’s route will be collected Wednesday, March 31. The part of Thursday’s route to be collected Wednesday is from Birch Avenue north to Kansas Avenue and from Sixth Street west to 15th Street. The remainder of Thursday’s route and Friday’s entire route will be collected Thursday, April 1. All refuse should be placed at normal pickup locations by 6 a.m. on the scheduled day of pickup. There will be no return pickups.
