Yes. The materials may be included in with your mixed paper. Mixed paper can include newspaper, copy paper, envelopes, other junk mail (please remove all plastic associated with junk mail), magazines and telephone books. If you have large amounts of paper, we ask that you bring the materials to either recycling drop off site located at 1420 South Happy Hollow Road and/or 735 West North Street.
Residents receive two bins for free when participating in the recycling program. Using two bins is ideal: one for glass, plastic, and metal containers, and one for paper and paperboard. Additional bins are available by calling our Recycling and Trash Collection Office at 479-575-8398. Additional bins cost $13.16 plus tax, and can be picked up at the Recycling and Trash Collection Office located at 1560 South Happy Hollow Road.
We recycle newspaper, mixed paper (junk mail, magazines, phone books, copy paper, etc.), paperboard (cereal boxes, etc.), cardboard, plastic bottles coded #1 and #2, aluminum cans, steel cans; and brown, green, and clear glass containers. We do not accept all other plastics not coded as a #1 and #2 bottle or jug, windows, light bulbs, ceramics, Pyrex, or similar items. Please make sure all materials are clean and free from trash contamination.
