The Conway CityWide Cleanup scheduled for this weekend is now available for all county residents to take part in.
Recycling Coordinator Whitney Reuschling announced last week the cleanup initiative is now open to all county residents, instead of just city residents.
The event allows Faulkner County residents to drop off unwanted at the landfill located at 4550 Highway 64 West in Conway at no charge on Friday and Saturday.
"If you're cleaning out your garage, the 20th and 21st would be the best day[s] to do it," Reuschling said.
Drop off times are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
The Conway Department of Sanitation is also allowing electronic waste to be dropped off at the landfill during the cleanup event.
This electronic cleanup covers “anything that is computerized,” Reuschling said previously told the Log Cabin Democrat. "We want people to know it's tablets, phones, anything that's an electronic, computerized item that we're accepting."
Common items such as washers and dryers, freezers, ceiling fans, air conditioning units, refrigerators, dishwashers, water heaters, mattresses, ovens and other household trash will be accepted during the clean-up drive.
Reuschling said she wanted to remind city and county residents that there are also several items the landfill cannot accept including tires, yard waste, car batteries, motor oil, antifreeze, herbicides, pesticides, fluorescent bulbs, construction debris, paint or liquids of any kind and hazardous waste of any kind.
The free drop-off applies to City of Conway and Faulkner County residential accounts, Reuschling said.
"Business and industrial accounts are not eligible," she said.
Designated drop-off locations will be dispersed throughout the county during the cleanup initiative.
