2021 Spring Fling Cleanup

Saturday & Sunday, April 24th & 25th

Hot Springs – Residents can clean out the garage, spruce up the yard and ditch unwanted items in a nearby roll-off container during the Hot Springs Solid Waste Department’s annual citywide Spring Fling Cleanup on Saturday and Sunday, April 24 and 25. 

City residents are encouraged to clean their neighborhoods, including nearby vacant lots, and discard items free of charge in 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. Hazardous waste, such as tires, paint, cleaning fluids or batteries, is not accepted; however, Solid Waste will hold a free collection event for these materials on May 15 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Garland County Fairgrounds.

Brush should not be discarded at the roll-offs. Instead, schedule a CAPS pickup of such materials by calling 501-321-6921, or it can be taken to the Compost Facility at 318 Davidson Drive. Residents are also asked not to place electronic items in the roll-offs. Instead, items such as computer components, radios, smaller televisions and microwaves can be brought to the Recycling Center at the Solid Waste Department, 218 Runyon Street, from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. weekdays.

Solid Waste Management

The role of the Southwest Central Regional Solid Waste Management District is to help develop, implement and maintain a comprehensive Solid Waste Management System that is the most environmentally safe and economically sustainable for the District’s member entities.  Each of the member cities/counties take an “individualistic” approach to Solid Waste Management within their respective areas, yet are united as a “team” and function that way in other regards. The member entities are united in the fact that they cooperate as a group to determine the best possible solution for disposal of all Class 1 Solid Waste, because there is no Class 1 Landfill located within District boundaries.

The Solid Waste Management System in the District is actively functioning in the manner that the legislation that was originally drafted had intended.  The “regional” concept is a departure from the customary approach of cities and counties dealing with Solid Waste Management issues alone.  The District has shown the willingness to approach these issues in a fashion that can be beneficial to the individual members and reap benefits for the collective body as well.  By maintaining communication and regular meetings among the officials of the local member governments and the Solid Waste System managers in the member jurisdictions and by gathering public input from a Citizen’s Advisory Committee, actions and policies of the District will be a reflection of the collaboration on key Solid Waste Management issues.
