Street and Sanitation
The Street and Sanitation Department provides garbage pickup on a weekly basis. Residents should place their garbage at the curbside by 7:00 AM on their designated day. Charges for this service are included in your water bill.
The street department also provides limb and leaf pick up. Place limbs at the curb side preferably on your trash pickup day, but separate from your household trash. At this time, bagged leaves will be picked up only. The leaf vacuum has been parked until the Fall.
Recycling is also a service that the street department provides. Recycling is picked up every Friday morning, but one must call the Mayor’s office to be placed on this list. One may also place their recycling in the Recycle bin located at the City Shop on Marr and Cain Street. The gate is open from 7:00 AM-3:00 PM.
Ben Wicker is the Street Department Superintendent and will be happy to help you.
The Street Department may be contacted at 870-892-5020 from 7 AM-3 PM Daily.
