Why Should I Recycle?

Recycling Conserves Natural Resources

Recycling a ton of paper saves 37000 lbs. of lumber and 24,000 gallons of water.

Recycling Saves Energy

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV set for 3 hours.

Recycling Preserves Landfill Space

Recycling one ton of paper saves three cubic yards of landfill space.

“More Service — Less Waste”

Recycle Center


Recycling is the third of the three R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Recycling is basically taking a product or material at the end of its useful life and turning it into a raw material that will be used to make another product.

The Carroll County Recycling Center located in Eureka Springs is one of the most recognized, utilized and copied facilities in the entire state. Curb side recycling service is now provided to in excess of 5,500 customers and there are satellite recycling drop off centers located in both Berryville and Green Forest.

In 2012 4.3-million pounds of material was diverted from the land fill to our recycling center. The true economics of recycling however must be considered in terms of energy savings, resource preservation, pollution reduction, collection and safe disposal of hazardous waste and other related factors.

The recycling center in Eureka Springs is staffed by five employees whose responsibilities include separating material, bailing or packaging and working with commodity brokers.
