Classic Lawton Chevrolet hosts the West Side Three Mile Thursday on the 3rd Thursday of the month (I know this is usually the same Thursday as Business After Hours) We meet on the showroom floor and the run starts at 5:30pm. The runners run south along 82nd street to the last neighborhood before the railroad tracks (Wyatt Village Blvd) and take a right, make a loop thru the neighborhood and run back to Classic. This is a 3 mile run and when they get back we have refreshments and light bites for them to have while they socialize with one another.

Trash Off

The City of Lawton, in collaboration with the Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority, will host its 31st Annual Trash Off event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 4 in the McMahon Auditorium parking lot, 801 NW Ferris. This event is a free opportunity for Lawtonians to responsibly dispose of many materials that cannot be placed in residential carts. Citizens will be directed to proper disposal bins by signage and volunteers in the parking lot on the morning of the event.

Citizens may drop off materials at no charge, but must present a valid ID with a Lawton address or a City of Lawton utility bill. Those with military ID will also be permitted to drop off materials at no cost.

Non-residents wishing to drop off items may do so by making a $25 donation by cash or card to the Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority on-site.

Items accepted during this event include used oil, auto batteries, antifreeze, fluorescent bulbs and appliances. Special vendors will also accept pharmaceuticals, pesticides and pool chemicals. A full list of acceptable and unacceptable items can be found HERE . Inquiries about any Trash Off materials to be accepted may be directed to the City of Lawton Neighborhood Services Division at (580) 581-3467.

In addition to on-site collections in the auditorium parking lot, various volunteers and civic groups will coordinate to clean trash and debris throughout areas of town. Those interested in participating in this beautification project, can contact City of Lawton Neighborhood Services
Division at (580) 581-3467 or bgreenhill@lawtonok.gov <mailto:bgreenhill@lawtonok.gov> for supplies, T-shirts and mapped locations.
“This is a wonderful partnership between the City of Lawton and the Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority,” said Brock Greenhill, City of Lawton Neighborhood Services Supervisor and project coordinator. “This is an opportunity for the community to come together to help beautify our city and take pride in where we live.”


Community partners of the 2019 Trash Off event include Goodwill, Gills Waste Oil, Comanche County Sheriff’s Department and the Wichita Mountains Prevention Network. Such partnerships allow for the proper disposal of substances that could otherwise end up in the City Landfill.
Several City Departments are involved in the initiative as well, to include Community Services, Public Works and the City Manager’s Office.</mailto:bgreenhill@lawtonok.gov>
