In 2015, Cave City joined forces with the White River Regional Solid Waste Management District to bring a first-ever recycling service to our residents. This is part of our larger "Clean Up Cave City" initiative, which also includes a yearly Citywide Cleanup event each spring. With this service in place, our residents are recycling thousands of pounds of material each month that no longer end up in our landfills!
Recycling makes a real impact by saving resources, reducing energy costs in manufacturing, reducing air and water pollution, minimizing garbage costs, and creating jobs. It is a vital part of making a difference in the quality of our environment, and a wonderful way of teaching our kids about the importance of taking care of the community.
We now have a two trailers parked at City Hall in which you can place your recyclables; one for electronics and one for glass/plastic/cardboard collection.
For more information about recycling (or to recycle large quantities of electronics), contact White River Regional Solid Waste Management District at (870) 793-5233. You can also visit their website at whiteriverrecycles.org.
