We do not pick up bulk waste curbside. You may bring bulk waste items to the landfill only. Please note that some items will require a small fee for disposal. If you have a question about your bulk waste items, contact our office at 501-450-6155.
Do not place tires in your curbside recycling or garbage cart. Although we do not pick up tires curbside, Conway residents, who show ID and a current Conway Corp. bill, may bring up to four (4) passenger tires, off the rim, per month without a charge. There is a handling charge for anything over that limit or for oversized tires (e.g. tractor tires).
Faulkner County residents may drop off tires, off the rim, for a nominal fee.
NOTE: Commercial tire dealers with large volumes should call our office (501-450-6155) before coming to the landfill to ensure there is sufficient room in the tire bin.
Our employees work very hard to meet the waste collection expectations of every Conway resident/business, but every now and then, unforeseen events can occur (e.g. broken equipment and weather). If you are missed, contact our office at 501-450-6155. Our staff will investigate further and solve any issues regarding your waste/recycling pickup needs.
IMPORTANT: The resident/business must follow the rules stated below or collection may not occur:

We are a solid waste facility and not permitted to accept any liquids in our landfill (be it chemicals, paints, bodily fluids, etc.) Residents (not commercial businesses) may dispose of small amounts of latex paint if it is dried to a solid (80% minimum) using kitty litter, sawdust or dirt-not sand; it should be capped, in its original container and labeled "solid." Pouring it on the ground can harm our streams, lakes or ground water; pouring it down the sink can be harmful and difficult to treat at the water treatment facility. It is best to use it up, dry it out, or donate to programs, such as Habitat for Humanity.
We do not recycle florescent bulbs/cfl/light bulbs curbside. Please do not place any fluorescent/cfl/light bulbs in your regular recycling bin or recycling glass container. Conway residents may bring 4 bulbs for free each month. After that, each bulb is 50 cents each. Some business around Conway will take your used bulbs for recycling (e.g. Home Depot)

For safety reasons, residents who use medical waste products for in-home health care, need to take special care for everyone involved, including our employees. If possible, it is better to use a professional disposal system. If you currently have a doctor or home health care provider that accepts your used needles, bandages, IV bags, etc., please continue to use this means of disposal. If you do not have access to the resources mentioned above, please use the following methods for proper in home disposal:

No. We are a solid waste facility and not permitted to accept any liquids in our landfill (be it chemicals, paints, bodily fluids, etc.) Businesses with these types of products should first follow the proper disposal guidelines on the containers and follow procedures set up by their governing bodies.Although you are responsible for monitoring and keeping these materials out of the regular waste stream, our state governing and inspection agency (ADEQ) requires us to do random waste screenings of businesses due to the ban of certain materials, including bio-hazardous waste and liquids of any kind, from entering the landfill.
