Additional Trash or Recycling Bins
You can obtain an additional trash can or recycle can if needed. The cost will be $10.00 for an extra trash cart and $3.00 for an extra recycle cart. This monthly charge will be included on your water bill. Please contact Waste Management at 479-880-CART (2278) to order additional cans.
Replacement fees for missing trash or recycle cans are billed to the customer at $50 per can. Please avoid these charges by being responsible for your trash container. It is suggested you set your cans out for pickup no more than 24 hours before your scheduled pick up day and return them to a secure location as soon as possible after they have been emptied.
Please do not contact City Corporation with questions involving solid waste or scheduling.
New Waste Management Truck
Soon you will see a new Waste Management truck coming down your street. These new trucks will provide a safer, more efficient, and more sustainable way to serve you. It will also change the way your containers are picked up:
- Please make sure all bags are placed inside your cart. Only bags in the cart will be picked up.
- Please make sure there is 2 feet of clearance on both sides of your cart, and place the cart at the curb within 3 feet of the road.
- Please place the cart with the lids opening toward the street.
If you have any questions, please call Waste Management at 479.880.2278
