Recycling FAQs and Contact Info

Below are some common questions about recycling in Little Rock 


My recycling was missed, how do I get it picked up? 

If your recycling cart has not been picked up by 5 p.m. on your pick-up day and you've made sure there are no contaminants in the cart, please use 311 (501-371-4437) to report a missed recycling pick-up. You may leave your recycling cart at the curb until it is emptied.

My cart (recycling or trash) went missing on my pick up day? 

Sometimes recycling carts accidentally fall into the recycling truck when they are being emptied. If your recycling cart goes missing on your pick up day you can request a replacement cart by submitting a 311 request. Submit a "recycling cart issue" request and select "need replacement cart." 

I moved into a house (single family, duplex, triplex, quadplex) and do not have a recycle (or trash) cart, what do I do? 

You can use 311 (call or download the 311 app) to request a replacement recycle cart.   

My recycle bin is not big enough, what do I do? 

You can request a second recycle cart by using our 311 service (501-371-4437). You will be charged an extra $3.11 per month for every additional recycle bin.
