Time to roll out your recyclables
What's recyclable? Visit the Acceptable Materials page or check out the lid of your cart.
Residential customers can recycle old phone books curbside or take them to one (1) of the three (3) Saturday morning drop-off centers. For businesses with 100 or more phone books call Waste Management for a free roll off and delivery at (501) 804-3633 through April. Residential Recycling Program Questions?
As a reminder, plastic bags are no longer accepted at the curb but can be taken back to Kroger, Walmart, and other retailers.
Do not bag recyclables! Please place loose materials in the cart.
Also, please allow at least three (3) feet in between your recycling cart, trash cart, and any other objects.
To report missed recycling or to request a replacement or additional cart, call 311 Monday - Friday, 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM or click here.
Have too much cardboard and don't know how to properly dispose of it? Cardboard can be recycled but must be able to completely fit in the cart with the lid closed. Cardboard that cannot be placed in the recycling cart for pick up may be set out with yard waste for collection. Cardboard boxes will be collected provided they are either empty, contain more cardboard, or contain yard waste. Please note that the boxes and contents must weigh sixty (60) pounds or less to be picked up. Boxes containing anything other than these materials noted – such as Styrofoam packing peanuts, trash, etc. – will not be collected. In cases such as these, call 3-1-1 and request an on-call pick-up.
We loan out collapsible recycling containers to the public for events. If interested, please contact Melinda Glasgow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Little Rock's Adopt-A-Street program in partnership with Keep Little Rock Beautiful offers an opportunity for civic groups to beautify the City through volunteering to pick up littler and trash on their selected street. There are many streets in need of adoption, so call 501-371-4537 today to apply and participate or visit klrb.org for more information.
