More than 89 percent of Fort Smith's recyclable materials collected from October 2014 to June 2016 were dumped in the landfill, City Administrator Carl Geffken said.

Of the 6,073.46 tons of recycling collected from October 2014 to June 2016, 5,414.61 tons were dumped in the landfill, while 658.85 were recycled at Green Source Recycling Center in Clarksville, according to a chart from Geffken.

Since July 2016, all of the recycling has been dumped in the landfill, the Times Record previously reported.

In June 2016, the last time the city took any recyclable materials to Green Source, 9.73 tons — or about 3 percent — of the 308.75 tons of collected recycling was recycled.

The percentage of collected recyclable material that was recycled was higher earlier during the arrangement with Green Source. In November 2014, 42.99 tons — or about 18 percent — of the 125.7 tons collected were recycled.

There was no contract between the city and Green Source, Geffken said.

Green Source does not typically serve Sebastian County and could not keep up with the recycling coming from Fort Smith, the Times Record previously reported. Green Source began accepting some recycling from Fort Smith after the city's contract with Smurfit KAPPA expired. The city did not notify residents that recyclable materials were being dumped in the landfill.

There will be a special study session 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Fort Smith Convention Center, 800 Rogers Avenue, Hall A3. Geffken will present possible solutions to the city's lack of recycling.
