The purpose of the Texarkana, Arkansas, recycling initiative is to lessen the local environmental impact by providing residents a way to recycle much of their waste. The program is just beginning and we hope to keep expanding it, and begin accepting additional recyclable material, in the future.

In 2010 the city launched Green Texarkana, a monthly recycling collection made possible with the help of Waste Management, Richardson Waste Inc., and UNICOR. The community’s positive response and participation has helped the City secure funding for equipment that will expand recycling to more areas of town as well as commercially.
- Increased participation through outreach at schools and in the community.
- Expanded recycling services.
- Making the City recycling program financially self-sufficient.
