Jonesboro recycling schedule shifts to twice a month

JONESBORO, Ark. – Those who recycle with blug bags began receiving yellow cards indicating their forthcoming recycling schedule, beginning July 1, 2017.

Previously, recycling crews picked up blue bags each week on the same day that trash ran. However, to make the program more economically feasible for Abilities Unlimited, who handles the recycling contract, the schedule will change to twice per month, either the first and third regular trash day or the second and fourth regular trash day.

Jonesboro residents have begun to receive yellow stickers to affix to their trash bin with their scheduled trash and recycling pick up days respectively printed.
