City of Conway Implements State-of-the-Art Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Featuring NEXGEN Brand Equipment | Marathon Equipment, 21 April 2010 [cached]
"Thanks to the implementation of the Marathon equipment to outfit Conway's newly automated Material Recovery Facility, our community takes pride in the revitalization of our co-mingled recycling program," said Cheryl Harrington, Director of the Conway Sanitation Department.

Cheryl Harrington, director of the Conway Sanitation Department, said later Thursday afternoon that this was also her understanding of the situation.
"The council at that time asked me if I was comfortable with the amount of money that we had to do this (purchase the $1.5 million automated recycling machine)," Harrington said. "I told them 'yes, based on the figures that were given to me.'"
Harrington said that an e-mail in October from city Chief Financial Officer Robin Scott in stated that her department's reserve was about $4.5 million.
Harrington was again told by Scott at a special city council meeting held on Feb. 5 to discuss sweeping budget cuts to remedy the general fund reserve shortfall that her department's reserve was in good standing.
Alderwoman Mary Smith said Thursday evening that Harrington "would have never in a million years come and asked us for a million-and-half-dollar piece of recycling equipment if she knew," and that if the council had known the sanitation reserve's true figure, "we would never have approved that machine or most of the other things" spent out of it in 2009.
Harrington, Smith and Vaught each said that the new remedy to the new reserve problem had been presented to them by Townsell as a loan of about $2 million.
I was at the Council Meeting last Friday evening, when Ms. Harrington was informed that the Sanitation Department fund was in very good shape, even after the expenditures that had been approved by the City Council.
Ms. Harrington, you are one of the best things to happen to the City of Conway!
I was also at last Fridays meeting when Mrs. Harrington stood up and asked about their reserve and the mayor assured her several times that they were fine and she has tried several times to find out how much money she had and all shes gotten is...'you are fine not to worry'....and the sanatation dept has helped this city with funds on more than one occasion....the sanatation dept has made money for this city for the last 5 years anyway. and to say 'look at them just driving around town' is bs....they are always working on something....they arent just 'loafing'....and if the cfo is teaching her finance students at hendrix her 'business ethics' then I feel sorry for those students......besides all that how much attention can she pay to the city OR her students if she is trying to do both jobs?????

Conway Sanitation Department Director Cheryl Harrington said Monday that she thinks her department can make these payments, but it would mean halting almost all capital purchases for the duration of the debt.

Cheryl Harrington, director of the Conway Sanitation Department, reported the reuse center was almost ready to be opened to the public and that Conway is becoming known as a recycling resource for the state, with both the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission in negotiations to transport Styrofoam material to the department's recycling center, home of the state's only Styrofoam densifier - a machine that can turn several square meters of styrofoam into a dense, much smaller and more easily recycled extrusion of plastic.
Harrington also said the new Nexgen Baling Systems mechanized recyclables sorting machine, which was approved by the council at a cost of about $1.75 million including installation, would be up-and-running this year. This machine will increase the city's capability to sort and process recyclables tenfold, she said, hopefully attracting other regional recycling contracts.

"We've found china [cookware]; we've found clothing, baby items, purses; you name it, we have just about everything," said Cheryl Harrington, the director of the Conway Sanitation Department.
The project has been two years in the making. The idea, simple: sift through tons of garbage each day for useable items, sanitize and sell them to needy families at practically no cost.
"Anything that we can do to reduce the amount of waste that's going into our landfill, that's what we want to do and this gives us an opportunity to give back," said Harrington.
