Education Programs

Recycling/Waste Reduction Education

The Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District does not have a formal comprehensive Education and Public Awareness Program. However, the District has initiated a trial Recycling/Waste Reduction Education Program targeted for presentation to all fourth grade classes located within the District boundaries. Ms. Julie Dickson is the contact for scheduling program presentations and she can be reached at 501-520-8037.


The SWCRSWMD provides a wide range of technical and educational services related to Solid Waste Management issues, including "recycling". One of the more significant of these programs is the "Bagman" Program. This is a Recycling Education/Promotional Program utilized in the area schools in conjunction with a Public Information Program through area newspapers in the District. The objective of the program is to explain the economic benefits of diverting waste from landfills.
