Sanitation and Recycling

The Solid Waste Department serves approximately 6,041 residential customers, 272 commercial customers, and has over 600 dumpsters and roll-off containers.

We strongly encourage recycling. For more information on recycling, or to request a free recycle bin, please contact the Solid Waste Department at 479-524-8512.

The Benton County Solid Waste District has opened their Satellite Convenience Center next to the Transfer Station. The program is available to Benton County residents the first and third Saturday of every month from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 

Once-A-Week Automated Trash Collection

The City Sanitation Department is excited to provide an efficient and quick method of trash collection that will decrease the amount of trash going to the landfill, increase recycling participation and lower worker-related injuries.
 Trash and recycling is picked up one time a week, by zone.  If you are unsure of your trash/recycle day, you can view a map of the zones here.  
  • All trash must be bagged and put inside the City-issued blue trash cans. 
  • Please place trash bins AT LEAST FIVE FEET AWAY from any obstruction such as a mailbox, fire hydrant, parked car or utility pole. 
  • Trash bins placed too close to obstructions will not be picked up. 
  • Placing your bin in front of a mail box can result in mail not being delivered. We recommend placing your trash bin on the opposite side of the driveway from your mailbox. 
  • Any trash not placed inside the City- issued blue bins will not be picked up.
  • For those who have street parking in your neighborhood, we ask that you place your trash bins in the street with the wheels pushed against the curb (wheels facing the house).
  • You must move your cart in from the curb to your home after collection has been completed for the day. Your trash bin cannot stay on the curb throughout the week.

Bagged yard waste (grass clippings and leaves)

Yard Waste will be picked up on the same day as your trash. Please note your trash pickup day in the information attached to the trash bin during delivery or by clicking here

Holiday Schedule

Trash collection will not occur on holidays. Customer's trash and recycling pick up will be delayed one day. For example, if the holiday falls on a Monday and your trash is usually picked up on a Monday, your trash and recycling route will be delayed until Tuesday. If your normal pickup is Tuesday, it will be picked up Wednesday and so on for the rest of the week.
