City of Baker Clean-Up Days

By Lori Kesinger

    The City of Baker is inviting all of its residents to come out and take part in a citywide clean-up to show how much pride they have in their hometown.

    Baker’s annual Clean-Up Days are scheduled for Saturday, May 9 through Sunday, May 17.

   People are more than welcome to clean up at their own pace. Service organizations are encouraged to contact the City if they would like to volunteer to clean-up an area.

   Containers will be available for public use near the City Shop at the west end of Milwaukee Avenue.

   The City is pitching in as well. The Public Works Department will assist those who are physically unable to haul their items. The items must be left on the street or avenue curbs to be picked up from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. City working days and from 7 a.m. until noon Friday, May 15; afterwards residents will be responsible to dispose of their own items.

   Residents are encouraged to trim tree branches near streets and alleys and dispose of at the site in an area so designated or at the Fallon County Container Site. Other containers may be marked for disposal of certain items.

   The Container Site, located on Coral Creek Road southeast of Baker, is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Disposal is free to all county residents.

   For more information or to assist, contact the City at

406-778-2713 or 406-778-2692.
