Household Hazardous Waste
Normally takes place in May
Annual event sponsored by the Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Planning Management District.
Garland County residents can bring household hazardous waste to the county fairgrounds for a safe, free disposal of unused/leftover household products containing toxic, flammable, corrosive or reactive chemicals.
A paint exchange area will also be available for paint that is still usable/stored in the original container with a legible label. Passenger tires (no rims) and electronic waste will also be accepted.
Operation Clean Sweep
Happens three times a year in various areas throughout the city

Spring Fling Cleanup
Normally takes place the last weekend in April
Residents can clean out the garage, spruce up the yard and ditch unwanted items in a nearby roll-off container during the Hot Springs Solid Waste Department's annual citywide Spring Fling Cleanup, regardless of the weather, on Saturday and Sunday, April 23 and 24.
City residents are encouraged to clean their neighborhoods, including nearby vacant lots, and discard items free of charge in the roll-off containers. The containers will be placed in all six city districts during the cleanup (see location list below). Large or bulky items can be placed next to the container if they are too heavy to lift. Hazardous waste, such as paint, cleaning fluids or batteries, is not accepted; however, Solid Waste will hold a free collection event for these materials on May 14, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., at the Garland County Fairgrounds, 4831 Malvern Avenue.
Brush should not be discarded at the roll-offs. Instead, schedule a CAPS pickup of such materials by calling 501-321-6921, or it can be taken to the Compost Facility, 318 Davidson Drive. Residents are also asked not to place electronic items in the roll-offs. Instead, items such as computer components, radios, smaller televisions and microwaves can be brought to the Recycling Center at the Solid Waste Department, 218 Runyon Street, weekdays from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
