Many communities simply leave commercial and industrial collection to the private sector. But in Fort Smith, commercial and industrial collection represents a crucially important element of our overall community strategy.

The Fort Smith Department of Sanitation offers the full range of collection services to the commercial and industrial sector – including the availability of containers and complete recycling programs, including the recycling of corrugated cardboard.

The Department of Sanitation offers commercial customers container and roll-off services, with containers available according to customers’ needs in two-, four-, six- or eight-yard sizes available. Roll-off containers for large jobs and industrial customers are available in 20-, 30- and 40-yard sizes.

Many businesses also participate in our cardboard recycling program, which is free with our commercial services and makes use of eight-yard containers for commercial businesses or roll-off containers for industrial customers.

To get cost information on any of the above listed containers please contact our Commercial/Industrial Dispatcher at (479) 784-2465. We will be happy to serve your needs.
