Bin Information: How to sort your items and where to place your bin
Customers are supplied with up to two bins free of charge. To purchase more bins, contact the office at 479-575-8398.
Place all containers (plastic bottles #1 and #2, glass bottles, steel and aluminum cans) in one bin and all paper (mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard and paperboard) in the other.
Flatten all boxes and place large cardboard pieces underneath your bins when you set them out.
Cardboard left on ground should be no more than 3 foot by 5 foot.
Stack newspapers on top of mixed papers for easy sorting by our drivers. Newspaper and mixed paper may also be separated in a paper bag to help our drivers service the bins more efficiently.
Labels and caps do not have to be removed from recyclables.
Do not place needles, tobacco products, diapers, broken glass or other trash in with your recyclable materials.
Remove all liquid, food residue and plastic linings from containers.
Place your recycling bin at the curb by 5 a.m. or the night before your collection day.
Place your recycling bin within 6 feet of the roadway and at least 3 feet from your trash cart.
If a street has a sidewalk adjacent to the curb, place bins at the back of the sidewalk to avoid impending access on the sidewalk.
During inclement weather, place your paper and paperboard recycling in a bin with the lid securely fastened to keep material dry.
