Curbside Recycling

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.
