Telephone book recycling

The Hot Springs Sanitation Department kicks off this year’s telephone book recycling drive on Monday, July 8, as the new telephone book is delivered throughout the community. The drive will end on Saturday, August 31.

City residential recycling customers can simply place their old phone books in one of their current recycling containers curbside on their regularly scheduled recycling collection day. Drop off containers will also be available at the following locations:

• Recycling Drop-off Center, 24-hour location, Valley and Runyon
• Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce, Grand and Ouachita
• Garland County Library, 1427 Malvern Avenue
• Hot Springs Memorial Field, 525 Airport Road
• Mid-America Science Museum, 500 Mid-America Boulevard
• Hwy. 7 North and 70 West Garland County Transfer Stations
• Hot Springs Village Recycling Center

Area businesses are encouraged to participate in the drive by using one of the drop-off centers. Businesses inside city limits with more than 100 phone books can request a collection by calling Sanitation at 321-6911. Garland County residents and businesses outside city limits can also deposit phone books at the county transfer stations on Highway 7 North and 70 West, or one of the other facilities listed above.

Recycled phone books can be turned into roofing material, home insulation and recycled paper products. Recycling the books saves trees and conserves landfill space. The Hot Springs/Garland County Beautification Commission, Garland County Environmental Services Department, Garland County Library and Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce are partners in the city’s recycling drive. For more information, call 321-6911.
