Residential Recycling

Recycling Cart

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 only.

  • Citizens residing in multi-family complexes where green-cart service is not utilized are encouraged to bring recyclables directly to the city facility without charge.
  • A residential account with Conway Corporation must be active before collection can begin.
  • With your utility garbage collection, residential recycling and yard waste services are provided at no additional charge.

Do you live outside the Conway city limits? Contact the Faulkner County Solid Waste Management District for collection requirements and processes. The Conway Department of Sanitation provides collection services only within the Conway city limits.
