Sanitation Interim Director Named:
Help us welcome Jack Bell into the role of Sanitation Director on an interim basis,
from Mayor Tab Townsell.
I have named Jack Bell as Interim Director of Sanitation while the city is conducting a search for a permanent replacement for the late Cheryl Harrington. Mr. Bell has been currently serving as chairman of the Faulkner County Solid Waste Board representing the Mayor’s Office. He will continue to assist in various functions of the Chief of Staff position and will maintain an office in City Hall. However, his primary duties and physical presence will be temporarily located at the Sanitation Department.
The search for a permanent replacement is beginning and the position will be advertised broadly. The knowledge and skill sets required over a variety of activity sectors and the narrowness of the related fields necessitates a broader search which will take time. During the search Mr. Bell’s familiarity with the operations, personnel, and policies make him a natural interim director.
Effective immediately until further notice; Due to shortage of mulch/compost only one load of this material per customer per week will be given out through our yard waste program
The City of Conway Sanitation and Recycling Department is committed to providing the most efficient and cost effective landfill site and collection system for our residents.
Conway Sanitation provides a 96-gallon trash container to each of the 21 ,000 homes within the city limits.The Conway Landfill operates using environmentally safe and sound engineering practices for disposal of municipal solid waste while complying with state and federal regulations. We encourage residents to participate in our convenient and free curbside recycling program. Conway's recycling program is a co-mingled program, meaning all recyclables with the exception of glass - can be mixed together in a blue, city-provided, recycling cart.
A recycling bin for glass is available to Conway residents at no charge and is collected on the same day as your garbage route. Residents need to place glass containers 5' from trash containers. A truck and trailer will pick up the glass recycling.
Conway Sanitation, together with the Faulkner County Solid Waste Management District, operates an educational program for area students about the benefits of recycling. Each year, thousands of school children tour the Conway Recycling Center and its on-site "Recycle City" classroom. This dedicated space promotes through hands-on learning good waste management and conservation practices. Tours and presentations are also available for community groups.
