North Little Rock will always provide excellent sanitation service and that's not changing. But as of January 1st, 2014 we are asking our residents to help us reduce our fees when we drop off stuff at the landfill. By separating our green waste (yard clippings, bagged leaves, branches, etc.) from all the other bulky items (couches, mattresses, chairs, tables, etc.) we hope to make our sanitation service more efficient. Please refer to the PDF for more information and more detailed descriptions of the changes.

Schedule a pickup for leaves after February 27th
NOTICE: NLR Leaf Program
The leaf vacuums tentatively runs from November until mid February. The schedule is set to pickup your street every 2-6 weeks depending on the demand.
Effective 3/3/2014 the Sanitation department will start on-call Loose Leaf Pick Up service until the middle of March. Call 371-8340 for details.
Please call the P.W. hotline number and select option 3 for the most current location of the leaf vac. trucks. Leaves must be raked or blown to within six feet of the curb. Do not block the curb with a vehicle or any other obstruction, otherwise, the vacuum crews cannot get to the leaves. Do not mix tree limbs or anything else with the leaves as they can damage the equipment. Please do not block sidewalks. If the leaves are wet, they can be slippery and dangerous to pedestrians. Do not put leaves in the street, as they are a major cause of blockage in the storm drains. Bagged leaves are picked up weekly on your regular yard waste day.
