Some cheers -- and reminders -- about keeping peninsula clean
The Cooper Landing Sexy Senior Dumpster Cleaners have been cleaning the transfer sites in the communities of Cooper Landing, Hope and Moose Pass. We started this project with three volunteers five years ago. Today we have many more working with us, including Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Dale Bagley who has worked with us several times. Rep. Ken Lancaster, Helen Donahue and Sen. Alan Austerman have promised to join our efforts this summer, too.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Peninsula Sanitation for giving us this opportunity to work with them. We would also like to thank residents for recycling efforts and for disposing of their garbage in the proper manner. We would like to remind everyone to put all refuse completely into the Dumpster. Don't leave anything sticking out so we can't close them. Please don't leave anything on the ground. Hazardous waste such as batteries, oil, paint, etc. can be taken to the landfill in Soldotna on special dates to be disposed of properly and large items can be taken to the landfill in Soldotna anytime during open hours. Do not leave these items at the transfer sites; it causes enormous problems for us and encourages others to leave these types of items also.
Cooper Landing residents can drop off organic material at Mile 3 Snug Harbor Road every Saturday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Be sure to drop off materials as far to the back as possible to make room for more materials.
The Cooper Landing site is locked down from 7 p.m. through 7 a.m. in an effort to prevent the bear problems we have experienced at that site in past years.
Thanks again for helping us keep these sites clean and safe.
