Earth Angel Update

There are different ways to recycle in Hot Springs. In addition to the City’s Earth Angel curbside service, there is also the Recycling Center and the Recycling Drop-off Center. The Recycling Center is located at 218 Runyon Street and is open from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Recycling Drop-off Center is located at the corner of Valley and Runyon streets and is accessible 24 hours a day. Both locations accept aluminum cans, corrugated cardboard, newspaper, sorted office paper (including phonebooks), plastic (grades No. 1 and No. 2) and glass jars and bottles. For a short time after the Christmas holiday, non-artificial Christmas trees are also accepted at the Recycling Drop-off Center.
