Solid Waste and Recycling Info to Know

Recycling rate experiencing a yo-yo effect in Arkansas

In 2010, Arkansas’s recycling rate topped 45%, which at the time was up there with the best recycling states in the country. Much of this success can be attributed to the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) grant program, which offers grant money to communities across the state looking to start a recycling program.

However, the ADEQ 2013 report shows the state recycling rate dropped to 35%, a 10% decline in just three years. These numbers may be a bit misleading, though.

The same report states this yo-yo effect has been common since recycling statistics were first tracked in the State, and a big reason for the decline on paper is that fewer recycling facilities reported their annual results to the ADEQ.

Despite the yo-yo recycling effect in Arkansas, the overall recycling rate is still above the national average, so the State is certainly on the right track toward sustainability.

Renewable energy is an untapped resource in Arkansas…for now

The State has yet to fully develop its wind, biomass and solar technology potential. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) estimates that 40% of the State’s gasoline requirements could be produced by clean biomass product.

The renewable energy sector is also bringing jobs to Arkansas. Wind power manufacturing is expected to bring 3,000 new jobs to the State alone.

Tips for renting a roll-off dumpster in Arkansas

5 most common dumpster styles

Commercial dumpsters – Businesses use these dumpsters for weekly or monthly garbage hauling service. They are not for temporary use.

Roll-off dumpsters – These are the containers you rent for temporary uses, such as household cleanouts, roofing projects or commercial construction.

Trailer dumpsters – Used by some dumpster rental companies, these trailers are used similarly to roll-off dumpsters but are different in that they are on wheels – this offers the benefit of being easier on your driveway.

Bag-style containers – These small bins are made from durable fabrics and plastics and range in size from 1 to 3 cubic yards and hold less than 2 tons of debris. The “Bagster” container is one such dumpster.

Lowboy dumpsters – Similar to traditional roll-off dumpsters but with low sides, making it ideal for loading heavier debris, such as dirt, roofing material, concrete, tiles and masonry.

Information about dumpster rental weight limits and overage charges

Dumpster rental providers typically put a cap on the amount of weight you can load into a dumpster due to the fact it costs them more money to dump heavier loads at local landfills. This weight limit can range from 1 ton (2,000 lbs.) to 8 tons (16,000 lbs.) or more.

Overage fees typically range between $50 per ton and $100 per ton. For example, if the weight allowance is 2,000 lbs. and your load weighs in at 2,500 lbs., you’d owe an additional 1 ton of overage charges at the $50 to $100 rate, or whatever rate your dumpster rental agreement specifies.

TIP: Be particularly careful of going over the allotted weight limit when dealing with heavier debris, such as concrete, roofing shingles, dirt or masonry.
