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 (T.V’s, computers, radios, microwaves, VCR’s). Most of those items can be taken to the Washington County Household Hazardous Waste facility for free or a small charge. Washington County can be reached at (479) 444-1725. It is illegal to drop-off items other than the accepted recyclable materials. There is a $1000 fine for illegally dropping unauthorized items at the site.
The Recycling Drop-Offs are no longer accepting #3 through #7 plastics due to a lack of recycling markets. The domestic market for all plastic bottles and containers #3 through #7 has gone out of business. When two recycling markets that can account for the recycling of these plastics can be found the program will be reinstated. We are not able to collect the #3 through #7 plastics through our curbside program at this time.
