If you are looking to get rid of some items around your home that can be recycled, tomorrow is your opportunity to do so.
The monthly Texarkana, Ark., recycling event, Green Texarkana, will be held Saturday from 8AM to 1PM at E. 3rd and Hazel streets.

The Four States Fair Parade will also be downtown that morning, beginning at 10AM. Residents wishing to recycle are encouraged to come early in the morning or after 11:30AM to avoid parade traffic.

Green Texarkana is a single-stream recycling drive collecting paper, cardboard and plastics, as well as electronics. Tin and aluminum cans are also accepted, as well as plastic film like shopping bags. Those items should be bagged separately because they go to different processors.

This program cannot recycle glass, Styrofoam, tires, furniture or hazardous materials including CFLs (fluorescent lights). For more information call 870-779-4946.

Remember recycling benefits both our community and our environment. If you have not done so, take time to begin recycling today.
