At A Glance

Boston Mountain Solid Waste District

The Boston Mountain Solid Waste District is one of 18 in Arkansas. The district provides solid waste management in Washington and Madison counties. It operates a transfer station west of Prairie Groe where residents drop off solid waste and recyclables. The waste is taken to the Eco-Vista Landfill near Tontitown, and recyclables are sold. The district also works with cities to provide recycling programs for residents to reduce solid waste disposal.
