The City of Arkansas City will shift to a four-day sanitation schedule next week due to the closure of all City offices Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day. The Cowley County Landfill also will be closed Monday for Veterans Day. All of Monday’s and part of Tuesday’s routes will be collected Tuesday. The part of Tuesday’s route to be collected is from Madison Avenue south to the Mill Canal, and from Summit Street east to E Street
and southeast through Sleeth Addition. The remainder of Tuesday’s route and all of Wednesday’s routes will be collected as scheduled. Thursday’s and Friday’s routes will be unaffected. 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. No recycling will be collected Saturday. In fact, Saturday recycling has been permanently discontinued and residents will now have to use one of the three recycling trailers.
