WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Williams Clean and Beautiful Committee is getting ready to "fall into the season and help make Williams sparkle" at its next community cleanup day Sept. 20.

Volunteers should meet in the Williams and Forest Service Visitor Center parking lot at 9 a.m. with their hats and gloves. Williams Clean and Beautiful will provide trash bags.

The main cleanup areas will be around Grand Canyon Boulevard, Rodeo Road, and the cemetery. Residents can also use cleanup day to tidy up areas that aren't on the official route.

Clean and Beautiful Chairperson Carol Glassburn said participation has waned a bit at recent cleanup events and that the committee could use more helpers.

"It has been lighter," she said of the turnout. "We need to pick our pace up because we're falling down."

As an incentive to participate, volunteers can be on the lookout for Easter eggs hidden along the cleanup route with coupons for cash prizes.

Sponsors will provide coffee and pastries for volunteers in the morning and soda and water along the cleanup route. A barbecue for volunteers with hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and sodas will take place at noon in the Visitor Center parking lot.

Besides the trash pick up, residents can also recycle and dispose of several items on cleanup day.

Household batteries and car size batteries may be dropped off at the Rodeo Barn. Automobile tire disposal takes place from 9 a.m. to noon at the transfer station. Tires must be off the rims and no large truck or off road tires will be accepted. E-waste recycling takes place at the rodeo grounds from 9 a.m. to noon.

Large appliance removal will take place from Sept. 13 to 27. Residents will receive a voucher in their water bill for the appliance removal. Residents can bring the appliance to the transfer station themselves or schedule one free pickup per household. More information is available from the city at (928) 635-4451.

People can also get rid of as much as 10 gallons of paint per year for free at the Flagstaff Household Hazardous Waste center, 6770 E. Landfill Road. Paint with lead will not be accepted, and the cans must be marked. More information is available at (928) 527-9005.

Glassburn encouraged all community members to come out to the event and beautify the city.

"We're shining right now in Williams, but we need to keep it going," she said. "Everybody needs to get out and give us a hand."

Organizers thanked the American Legion Cordova Post #13, Arizona Public Service, CamDan Recycling, the city of Williams, the Williams Recreation Department, E-Green IT Solutions, I-40 Fleet Services, Kaibab National Forest Service, Red Garter Bed and Bakery, Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce, the Clean and Beautiful Committee and the Williams Police Department for their help with the event.

More information about Fall Clean-up Day is available from the Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce at (928) 635-0273 ext. 203.
