It's a small step in a new initiative called "Making North Little Rock Beautiful."
However, some are saying the city hasn't been clear enough as to what to do with the new 90,000 green and yellow bins.
"There was a lot of confusion in the beginning about when to put them out or what we were to put in them," North Little Rock resident Dawn Brigman said.
"If you have any questions about what goes into these bins, there is a sticker on the top," North Little Rock Mayor Patrick Hays said.
Others in the area thought their recyclables were getting picked up last week when Little Rock started, but no matter what, people are ready for the new initiative to get underway.
"I received a letter and two reminders when it will be picked up. I don't think there's anything, if you read your card, that's left to the imagination," said homeowner Diana Alexander. "We all need to get together and do it."
This is just a small step for North Little Rock as they join the nation's largest community improvement organization, "Make America Beautiful."
"Everything that we can do to keep trash off the streets and off the yards and into the proper places," said Mayor Hays. "It's so easy not to throw it out the window. We need to keep Arkansas beautiful and keep North Little Rock beautiful."
Mayor Hays also says the North Little Rock School District is now collecting the old recycling baskets to put in classrooms.
