It may not feel like Spring this week, but Dodge City will do some Spring cleaning this weekend.
Saturday is "Keep Dodge City Beautiful" clean-up day. The city is giving people an opportunity to get rid of hazardous materials like paint, pesticides, cleaners and batteries.
Police will also dispose of old prescription medicines.
"They will take any unwanted, outdated, no longer needed prescription medications and they will make sure they are disposed of properly," said Jane Longmeyer, spokesperson for the city of Dodge City. "This is a great opportunity to get it out of your household, not in the hands of children, who might not understand what these medications are for and to dispose of them properly".
Dodge City will also have a special riverbed clean-up. For more details on the clean-up, visit Dodge City's website by clicking here.
