The recycling event known as Green Texarkana is scheduled for this Saturday May 14, in Texarkana.

This program is free and provides responsible disposal for paper, cardboard, plastics and metal cans. Electronics such as TVs, computers, radios, printers and gaming systems are also accepted for recycling.

Green Texarkana takes place from 8AM and 1PM  Saturday at East Third and Hazel streets.

Hazardous materials like glass, Styrofoam, tires, fluorescent lights, furniture and paint will not be accepted.

Residents must wait to bring their items until volunteers arrive at 8AM, Saturday. Bringing items prior to this time and leaving them in the parking lot is considered littering.

To be accepted recyclable material must be acceptable and dropped off during the hours of 8AM to 1PM only.

Green Texarkana is an excellent opportunity for citizens to get rid of unwanted material without filling the local landfill with items that can be recycled.
