Spring County Wide Cleanup Campaign

- Advertisement -spot_img

The County Wide cleanup will begin on Saturday, April 1st and end on Saturday, April 29th. Dumpsters for the County five cleanup sites are provided in the County’s contract with CARDS. The County cleanup sites dumpsters are managed by Road Department Employees, with an “E-waste trailer” provided by the Solid Waste District.

County Government and City Governments cooperating in cleanup campaigns has significantly impacted illegal dumping activities and overall cleanliness of our Sebastian County Communities. Support of the Sebastian County Solid Waste District 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 plus $50 per ton for disposal. Cleanup campaigns are an opportunity to encourage community participation in cleanup activities.
