The Department of Sanitation provides residential recycling collection to single-family residences utilizing paid green-cart curbside garbage collection and in good standing with Conway Corporation utilities. This service includes one 96-gallon blue curbside recycling cart with weekly collection. Curbside recycling collection occurs throughout the Conway city limits on Mondays.
Citizens residing in multi-family complexes where green-cart service is not utilized are encouraged to bring recyclables directly to the city landfill.

Do you live outside the Conway city limits? If so, contact the Faulkner County Solid Waste Management District for collection requirements and processes. The Department of Sanitation provides collection services only within the Conway city limits.
Conway's recycling collection is a co-mingled program in which no sorting of recyclables is necessary. Our 35,000-square-feet recycling center, featuring both automated and manual sorting, processes approximately 100 tons of recycled material weekly.

Did you know? Plastic shopping bags are best recycled when returned to the retailer. Bags should never be placed in your curbside recycling cart. We do offer the convenience of drop-off stations for plastic shopping bags at both our Reuse Center and the landfill customer convenience area.
For reusable items still in good to excellent condition, drop them off at the city landfill for inclusion in our Reuse Center!
