Do Recycling Right!
Doing recycling right means only certain items go in your curbside recycle cart: Only empty plastic bottles and jugs with the caps on; only empty aluminum, steel and tin cans; only paper, stationery, newspapers, magazines and catalogs, junk mail, paperboard and cardboard. (If you put cereal boxes in the cart, remember to remove the plastic liner and put it in the trash. And remember to break down and flatten all cardboard boxes to fit inside your cart.) ONLY IN NORTH LITTLE ROCK AND SHERWOOD can you place empty clear, brown and green glass bottles and jars in curbside recycling carts. Empty food and beverage cartons are only accepted in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Sherwood, Maumelle and the unincorporated areas of the county, but not in Jacksonville.

INFORMATION ON GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS
North Little Rock and Sherwood now accept glass food and beverage containers in curbside recycling carts located inside the city limits. For these items to be recycled properly, please make sure the glass bottles and jars are clear, brown or green and are empty. But remember, this service is for North Little Rock and Sherwood residents only.
Residential customers who live in Little Rock, Maumelle and the unincorporated areas of the Pulaski County still must keep glass out of curbside recycling carts.
Available for everyone throughout the county are five Green Stations where glass, old electronics, household hazardous waste, and plastic grocery bags may still be dropped off. Also, empty food and beverage cartons are accepted in curbside carts in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Sherwood, Maumelle and the county only, but not at the Jacksonville Green Station.
Because the cities located in Pulaski County and the county itself have different recycling policies, please know your community's recycling details and specifics by clicking on your home community, below:
