Paper is one of the materials that can be easily recycled. Recycled paper is paper that is made from paper and paper products that have already been used and recovered. People need to take their time and save their paper products so they can be recycled. Paper recycling begins with us. We all need to show our interest in recycling to make it successful. The paper recycling activity can start at school, college, home, office, local community and even at drop off centers. We all need to understand what products can be recycled before starting the recycling process and how to properly prepare for them. The City of Hot Springs offers a Drop-Off Center at Valley and Runyon, which takes newspaper, corrugated cardboard, sorted office paper, plastic #1 and #2, aluminum cans, glass and phone books. We ask if you’re interested in curbside collection of recycling, please contact our office at 501-321-6911.
Please remember the City does not observe the President’s Day holiday, so all routes will be on schedule next week.
