Fayetteville to reinstate extra trash bag fees

The city’s Recycling and Trash Collection Division will reinstate its pay-as-you-throw extra bag fees for residential trash collection services beginning Monday, Oct. 5. The extra bag fees were temporarily waived in March when curbside recycling was suspended because of COVID-19.

Extra bag fees are $6.72 for each extra trash bag visible above the rim of the cart or outside of the cart on collection days. Each household will continue to receive four free extra bag collections per year. Customers are only charged for extra bags after their four free bag waivers have been used.

More information about the pay-as-you-throw program is available at fayetteville-ar.gov/payasyouthrow.
