Washington County residents can recycle three new items at the Boston Mountain Solid Waste District facility near Prairie Grove.
The waste district, which regulates waste disposal and runs multiple recycling programs throughout Washington and Madison counties, this year began accepting children’s car seats as well as storage bins made by Sterilite or Rubbermaid. These bins and seats will head to Ecotech, a Fayetteville business previously covered on this blog that processes plastics into small pellets and re-molds them into various household items.
To take part in the new program, make sure:
- Car seat fabric is removed.
- Seats and bins are empty and clean.
- Any bins are the proper brand.
The district also has become a collection point for used eyeglasses, which will be donated or recycled, depending on their condition, in partnership with the Prairie Grove Lions Club.
And feel free to bring all of your other recycling if you stop by. Boston Mountain’s facility also accepts the typical bottles, boxes and cans as well as scrap metal, e-waste, hazardous household waste, tires, plastic bags and more. The drop-off center is open at 11398 Bond Road from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday.
