 Fall County Wide Cleanup Campaign

Information Contact:
Steve Hotz, County Judge 783-6139
Randy Hall, Solid Waste
District Director 452-4104

The County Wide cleanup will begin on September 2nd and end on September 30th. Dumpsters are provided for the five County cleanup sites in the County contract with CARDS. The County cleanup site dumpsters are managed by Road Department employees, with an E-waste trailer provided by the Sebastian County Solid Waste district.

Proof of Sebastian County residency is required by Arkansas Driver’s License for disposal of trash at the cleanup site.

The County Campaign will take place on Saturdays starting September 2nd and go through September 30th, 2023.

County Government and City Government cooperating in cleanup campaigns has a significantly impacted illegal dumping activities and overall cleanliness of our Sebastian County Communities. Support of the Sebastian County Solid Waste District has also improved our cleanup campaigns.

It is our understanding that the County Solid Waste Collection Company, CARDS, also provides “cleanup campaign” support for four cities, Lavaca, Barling, Greenwood and Hackett in their individual city agreements. We understand CARDS provides “collection services” for Bonanza, Huntington, Midland, Hartford and Central City with no direct contracted support for cleanups. The City of Mansfield operates their own collection service and will need to obtain services for a city cleanup. Jason Fitzgerald is the CARDS representative at 501-607-4898. Dumpsters for each city cleanup, if provided by CARDS are $275.00 plus $50.00 per ton for disposal. Cleanup campaigns are an opportunity to encourage community participation in cleanup activities.
