Chamberlain asks businesses to pay $10/bag of trash, and is trying to convince teens and other organizations to use the idea as a fundraiser for their own groups. Interested parties should call Chamberlain at 928-202-1186.|

Then go out and pick up trash, and return to the Command Center between 11:30 a.m. for a free hot dog lunch that Central Yavapai Fire firefighters have cooked.
