The Hot Springs Solid Waste Department collects leaves, grass and small brush through the city's curbside residential Earth Angel Recycling Program. The materials must be in plastic garbage bags and placed curbside by 6 a.m. on a district's recycling days. To see the district collection days, visit http://www.cityhs.net/recycledays.
Small shrub trimmings no longer than 3 feet or 3 inches in diameter should be bundled.
Do not set out bags and bundles more than 12 hours prior to collection. Do not mix in other items, such as household waste, rocks or dirt. Those bags cannot be collected for recycling. Residents are allowed 50 bags of leaf and mulch per collection day. This service is intended for residential customers, and should not be used to subsidize any lawn services.
