Recyclables Only

It is very important to remember that these drop-off areas are for recyclables only! They are not designed to collect hazardous waste (paints, oils, cleaners and other home chemicals), large bulky items (furniture and appliances), or electrical items (TVs, computers, radios, microwaves, VCRs). Most of those items can be taken to the Boston Mountain Household Hazardous Waste Facility for free or a small charge. Boston Mountain can be reached at 479-846-3005. It is illegal to drop off items other than the accepted recyclable materials. Violators will be subject to a fine for illegal dumping.

Other Plastics

The Recycling Drop-offs and curbside program do not accept #3 through #7 and non-bottle #1 and #2 plastics due to a lack of recycling markets. We are diligently searching to viable markets to recycle the plastic non-bottle and #3 through #7 plastics. When sustainable and practical markets are identified, we will begin accepting these materials in our recycling program.
