Go Green – Recycle In Little Rock

Recycling is one small step you can take to help the environment. Little Rock tries to make recycling easy with curbsite recycling and several sites where you can you drop off your recyclables. All you have to do is separate them from your trash.

Curbside Recycling – What Can I Recycle?:

Residents living within city limits are furnished with a recycling bin. What can you place in this bin?

Plastic: Clear or green bottles; translucent milk jugs (no yellow ones), any plastic item with a neck smaller than its base.

Paper: Newspaper and inserts, flattened corrugated cardboard boxes (the cardboard with ridges between layers), brown paper grocery bags, junk mail and magazines (including all those catalogs you get that take up tons of landfill space).

Cans: Aluminum cans, pans and foil (clean pans and foil), steel beverage & food containers. You can use a beer can crusher to efficiently recycle these beer and aluminum cans and other waste bottles.

Glass: Clear, green or brown food and beverage containers.

When & Where Is Curbside Recycling?:

Curbside recycling is picked up on the same day as your regular trash. Items do not need to be separated. You just place the recycling bin with your items next to your trash. The sanitation workers generally will not pick up items that do not fit in the bin. If your items are not picked up, you can drop it off at one of the many recycling centers around the city. You can call Waste Management of Arkansas at 501-565-0191 for more information or to receive a recycling bin. In case a worker feels unsafe in their working envirionment they can go on https://carlsonmeissner.com/occupational-diseases-workers-comp-fl/ to get a lawyer for help.
