Once-A-Week Automated Trash Collection

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.

A $50.00 deposit is required for a City-issued roll-cart ($25.00 for senior and disabled).

Monthly cost for curbside trash pickup inside City limits:

Residential 64 gallon cart: $17.07
Residential 96 gallon cart: $21.48

Senior/Disabled 64 gallon cart:  $7.17
Senior/Disabled 96 gallon cart:  $11.58

Commercial Curbside (Downtown Historic District - dumpsters only)  $21.48
Commercial Curbside 96 gallon can:  $24.79

Inside city limits: $40.80 (+ tax) per ton. Less than a ton is pro-rated with a $5.00 (+ tax) minimum.
Outside city limits: $45.21(+ tax) per ton. Less than a ton is pro-rated with a $5.00 (+ tax) minimum.

 This fee includes once a week curbside collection of recyclables (newspaper, cardboard, magazines, paper, tin cans, aluminum cans, and #1 and #2 plastic bottles.)  Recycling must be placed at the curb on your trash day inside one of the City issued red recycle bins.

**Use of the City's Transfer Station facility for disposal of the resident's own household trash and other acceptable refuse will not be included in this fee.

Trash and recycling is picked up 1 x 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. Also, 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) 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.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please call the Sanitation Department at 479-524-8512.


What do I do with my old trash can?


You can bring it to the Sanitation Department to be recycled at 1108 E. Ashley Street or use it to store yard waste until you have enough to bag.


If I got the wrong size bin, can I get it swapped out?


Yes, but remember that if you choose the 96 gallon bin your cost will go to $21.48/month for most customers and $11.58/month for seniors. You just need to tell us that you got the wrong size.
