There are many ways to be creative in recycling, and there is no limit to how an individual can help.
"Be the Earth Angel of your block," the Hot Springs Solid Waste Department said in a news release. "Encourage your neighbors to recycle. Volunteer to help the elderly take their recycling to the curbside. Recycle, together, as a family. Take the initiative to start something great."
Due to the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, residential sanitation routes will run one day behind schedule. For example, Monday's collection takes place on Tuesday. The commercial sanitation routes will take place as normally scheduled. For more information about Earth Angel Recycling, call the Solid Waste Department at 501-321-6911 or sign up at http://www.cityhs.net/recycle-registration.
