Green Stations: Formerly known as Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers
Residents may dispose of used oil, used gasoline, used antifreeze, fluorescent bulbs (4-foot or less) for no charge at the Pulaski County Green Station located in Maumelle at 423 Cogdell Drive. The Green Station is located inside The City of Maumelle’s Recycling Collection Center & Transfer Station.
The Regional Recycling and Waste Reduction District works with Pulaski County jurisdictions in the areas of garbage and yard waste collection, composting, recycling, tires, and household chemicals. The cities and the County provide their own services, but use a regional approach to achieve system efficiencies through contract negotiation and administration. They now offer 6 green stations for the collection of the materials listed below. No other materials will be accepted.
Pulaski County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers changed their name to Green Stations due to the change of only accepting hazardous products that can be recycled.
More Information can be found at the Regional Recycling and Waste Reduction District website.
