Agnes Schmitz, 92, patrols around a Dumpster in October in Cooper Landing. She's a member of the Sexy Senior Dumpster Cleaners. The group receives $600 a month from the Kenai Peninsula Borough for its efforts to clean up dumps on the peninsula. The money goes to Cooper Landing Senior Citizen Corp., which is trying to raise enough money to buy land and build a six-plex of independent housing for seniors. The waiting list already has a dozen people who would like to live in the housing complex, according to Janet Mitchell, secretary-treasurer of the corporation. The group needs to raise almost $2 million to reach its goal.
