When visiting the Texarkana, Arkansas Recycling Center, enter the City Shop area from Dudley Street. The recycling center will be to your immediate left. Carts will be placed along the front of the building and clearly marked. You may park right in front of the carts to drop off your materials.
There is no limit to the amount of material you may bring for recycling. (If you are concerned about the amount of material you are bringing in please call 870-779-4946). If you bring items in bags or boxes please leave them that way when you drop them off; it is easier for staff to handle contained items than loose pieces.
When you are finished placing your material in the carts, a circle drive allows you to exit through the same gate you entered.
Please watch for pedestrians and vehicles! You will be entering an active work site with employees and equipment working. Please drive slowly and be alert. If you need to back up always look behind you before doing so.
We love questions! If you have any please call us, we are always happy to help you understand recycling in Texarkana, Arkansas.
