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 Solid Waste Department's annual "Spring Fling" citywide cleanup. The event will take place, rain or shine, on Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28.
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 and hazardous waste such as paint, cleaning fluids or batteries are also not accepted. However, Solid Waste will hold a free collection event for these materials on May 11 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Garland County Fairgrounds.
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 Regional Recycling Center at the Solid Waste Department, 218 Runyon Street, and weekdays from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
