Trash was collected:
- North of Laguna Creek Bridge on US Highway 163
- Heading east out of Kayenta on US Highway 160
- South on BIA Route N591
- West of Kayenta on US Highway 160
I would like to thank the following organizations for helping out with this effort and making this possible for Kayenta.
- Community Members of Kayenta
- The Teachers of Kayenta Unified School District
- Kayenta Township
- Kayenta Fire Department
- Blue Coffee Pot
- The Kayenta Chapter
Altogether with her efforts she was able to collect 23,033 40oz bottles. That translates to $1,151.65 of her own money that she put up to get rid of this eye sore in the community of Kayenta. The Kayenta Township is currently assisting with the hauling and disposal fees of these 40oz bottles in White Mesa, Utah with an additional estimated cost of $2000.00.
I truly believe we banned together as a community and made Kayenta better for our community members and visitors from all over the world. I sincerely hope that we all take pride in our community and take a sense of ownership of Kayenta that we call home. Thank you to all who came out and assisted with “Earth Week” here in Kayenta and making this week one for the books.
