Welcome to the Arkansas Recyclers Association


The Arkansas Recyclers Association (the “ARA”) was founded in 1989 by leaders in Arkansas' recycling industry to advocate for recycling throughout the state.

Our Objectives Include:

• Advocating for Arkansas' recyclers interests at the Arkansas General Assembly and throughout the state.• Gathering and disseminating information to ARA members that concerns legislation regulations affecting Arkansas' recycling industry. • Promoting legislation that fosters Arkansas' recycling industry.

ARA members share a common concern about the environment and the role the recycling industry will play in preserving Arkansas as the Natural State. The ARA creates a strong unified front that can effectively address public awareness, legislative, and regulatory issues which affect the state’s recycling industry.

With a proven track record as one of the most effective state recycling associations in the nation, the ARA provides Arkansas recyclers an opportunity to make a strong collective impact on the state’s recycling industry. Join today to ensure that Arkansas’ recycling interests in legislation, regulations, and other business issues are well represented.
