When a resident moves into the unincorporated area of Pulaski County, they should contact the Pulaski County Sanitation Department Office to set up service by calling: 501-210-7500. Each home is furnished with a special 96 gallon refuse and recycling container which the resident rolls to the end of the driveway or street (on private roads) on collection day for pick up. The waste collection vehicle will raise and dispense of household debris and return container to its original location. The driver/operator controls all operation from his/her seat. After collection, the resident is responsible for returning the refuse container back to its storage place. Please bag trash before putting in the trash cart for pick up.
The refuse and recycling container remains the property of the contractor and will be maintained and replaced at no cost to the resident, except for damage due to their negligence or abuse. Please do not take the container when you move; just contact this office by phone (501-210-7500) and request the service to be discontinued and your container will be picked up.
