Every part of an aluminum can is recyclable, and witha quick turnaround for use of materials, it can be made into a new item and back on the shelf in just 60 days. Be the Earth Angel of your block. There are many ways to be creative in recycling, and there is no limit to how an individual can help. Encourage your neighbors to recycle. Volunteer to help the elderly take their recycling to the curbside. Recycle, together, as a family. Take the initiative to start something great. To participate in the Earth Angel Recycling Program, call the Solid Waste Department at 501-321-6911 or sign up online at www.cityhs.net/recycle-registration.
