[ARCHIVED] Spring Fling citywide cleanup set for April 30 - May 1

Residents can clean out the garage, spruce up the yard, ditch the debris and bring it into the nearest roll off container during the Hot Springs Sanitation Department's annual "Spring Fling" citywide cleanup this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, April 30 and May 1. The event will take place, rain or shine.

City residents are encouraged to clean their neighborhoods, including nearby vacant lots, and discard items free of charge into 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. Brush will not be accepted. Hazardous waste such as paint, cleaning fluids or batteries are also not accepted; however, Sanitation will hold a free collection event for these materials on May 14 and again in the fall.

Residents are asked not to place electronic items in the roll offs during the Spring Fling. Instead, items such as computer components, radios, smaller televisions and microwaves can be brought to the recycling center at the Sanitation Department, 218 Runyon Street, weekdays from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

With the CAPS (Clean, Attractive Property Service) rate structure allowing two free pickups per year, this event provides additional free disposal service to city residents. Like the city's CAPS Program, the Spring Fling offers an alternative to illegal dumping.
Garland County Environmental Services will also participate in the cleanup weekend, with three drop-off locations available on Saturday only until 1 p.m. as detailed below.

It's the perfect time to coordinate a neighborhood cleanup or club service project or to earn student volunteer service hours. The cleanup is just for residents, and no commercial disposal is allowed. It is sponsored by the Hot Springs Sanitation Department, Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District and Garland County Environmental Services. For more information, call Sanitation at 321-6911.
