That brightly orange painted dumpster frequently seen parked at the Flag Plaza is free to borrow for the asking.
"We actually have two orange trailers that we call the ‘Big Orange Dandy Dumpsters’ (BODD)," says Jenna Hague. "These are available at no charge for residents to use. All they have to do is call either me or Dean Shoemate."
Hague explained the dumpsters are part of the Citizens for Pride in Pawhuska (CPP) task force that is being spearheaded by the GFWC Heeko Club. The smaller of the BODD trailers can be checked out for a week at a time.
"We will deliver the trailer to the individual’s home," says Hague. "Once filled, volunteers will pick it up and take the debris to the dumpster at no cost to the homeowner. The second BODD trailer is available to pick up larger items, such as appliances or furniture."
She says volunteers will handle the pickup and disposal.
"Saturday when the smaller BODD trailer was parked at the Flag Plaza, a couple of folks passing through took advantage and dropped off rubbish from their RV’s," says Shoemate. "While this was a little unusual, it worked!"
Both ladies expressed appreciation to the Pawhuska City Council, city employees (especially Jerry Brown and his crew), Chamber of Commerce, and Pawhuska citizens for joining in their efforts to restore pride to Pawhuska.
Anyone wishing to use one or both of the BODD trailers is encouraged to contact Hague at 918-287-3862 or Shoemate at 918-287-4633.
