Keep your kids active from 8am-1pm every Monday - Friday for June & July!

The YMCA is excited for our community partnership with Gila Vista Jr High School and Northstar to run Camp Club F.I.T (Fitness Initiative for Teens) for youths 10-14 yrs old or 5th-8th grade at Gila Visa Jr High. We are excited to offer low cost programs for kids who are too old for daycare, but still want a safe place to go to do something fun this summer. Their certified staff will keep your kids engaged with sports, arts or dance.

Each day opens with a free session from 8am-9am. Then your kids can pick a sport or arts option each day from 9am-11am. We will then walk over to McGraw for the free summer lunch program & return back to GVJHS for free open gym time from 11am-1pm. Kennedy pool opens at 1pm and would be perfect for your kids to enjoy after our programs. You can choose to sign up for only one class per day or sign up for all day/week long. This program is not licensed by AZDHS.

Club FIT is open to the public. There is low cost priority pricing for current GVJHS or McGraw students and kids who live within a mile and a half radius of the schools.

Session 1: June 10-June 26 Session 2: July 1- July 26

YUMA, Ariz. The City of Yuma’s quarterly Household Hazardous Waste collection day returns 8 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, October 12, in the east parking lot of the Yuma Civic Center (1440 W. Desert Hills Drive).

 

Leftover household products that are flammable, corrosive, toxic or reactive under certain circumstances are considered household hazardous waste (HHW). The City's HHW Day provides a free opportunity for residents to safely dispose of these products, such as paint, batteries, pesticides and cleaners, by simply dropping them off. This type of waste requires special care to be properly disposed of. 

To participate, collect your unwanted household hazardous waste items and take them to the Civic Center parking lot, where traffic control devices will show vehicles to the drop-off site. Then, describe the types of waste to be collected. From there, staff will provide instructions for which station(s) to stop to drop off waste.

 

The following items will be accepted at the HHW collection event:

  • Motor oil
  • Paint
  • Antifreeze
  • Household cleaners
  • Solvents
  • Pesticides
  • Batteries
  • Fertilizers
  • Tires (limit of five; must be off the wheel)
No business/commercial waste, ammunition, pressurized gas, radioactive waste, explosives, prescription drugs or needles will be accepted.
 
E-waste items for drop-off include:
 
• Home computer components
• TV sets
• VCRs/DVD players
• Cell phones
• Home phones
 
 
Questions? Please call the City's Public Works Department at (928) 373-4504.
