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.
