Recycling and Trash Collection Memorial Day Holiday Schedule and Household Hazardous Waste Trailer Program
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — On Monday, May 31, City departments, including the Recycling and Trash Collections office and TStation, will be closed to the public for the Memorial Day holiday. Collections for commercial and residential trash, commercial and curbside recycling and yard waste collection will run on the normal schedules and are not affected by the holiday.
The City is excited to announce a new service for collection of household hazardous waste.

Household hazardous waste will be accepted from Fayetteville residents for no fee. Please bring a water bill or other proof of residency. Acceptable items include batteries, fluorescent light bulbs (max 10), cooking and automotive oil (brought in jugs that can be dropped off), aerosols, pesticides and fertilizers, cleaners, oil-based paint, mercury items and sharps. No tires or latex paints will be accepted. For more information, visit the Boston Mountain website at https://www.bostonmountain.org/household-hazardous-waste.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. The Collection Center’s phone number is 479-846-3005.
