Recycling Policy 

It took me a while to find any sort of information about recycling in the Jonesboro area. Unfortunately, many areas like Jonesboro do not make it easy on their residents to learn how to recycle correctly. Below is more information on what you can and cannot recycle! 

You can visit their website here to purchase a blue recycling bin and look up your local recycling pick up schedule. Unfortunately, they don't have a ton of information on how to recycle properly. However, I will be continuing to update this page as the town begins making more strides in recycling. 

According to their website here is a list of what you can and cannot recycle. 

What Can You Recycle:

Plastics

  • #1 PET Plastics - Most water and soft drink bottles.  There are other items made of PET, just check the bottom of things like clear plastic drink cups.
  • #2 HDPE - Milk jugs and other liquid containers.  Just check the bottom for the number 2 in the recycling triangle.
  • Currently the the market for other plastic is depressed and we are unable to find buyers for the products so we are asking that you dispose of those.  When the market changes we will be able to accept again.

Aluminum: We accept Aluminum Beverage Containers (cans) which can be recycled over and over again.  Other aluminum like foil and pie pans are not accepted at this time but there may be opportunities for those in the near future.

Steel Cans (Tin): Tin cans and other metals can be place in a blue bag and other metal that is to large for the bag may be brought to the recyce center.

Glass: We accept clear and color glass containers.  Glass has no value but there are companies that will pick it up and recycle it.

Cardboard: We accept all cardboard that is not contained with oil or food waste.

Paper: Newspaper, magazines, junk mail and most clean paper products including shredded paper.

What You Can Not Recycle: 

The following items are not accepted

  • Tires
  • Wood
  • Mattress
  • Furniture
  • TV's
  • Computer Monitors
  • Styrofoam
  • Plastic Auto Parts
  • Used Diapers (you would be surprised how many we get)

I couldn't find any information on how to compost properly in this area.
