The City of Jackson’s Department of Public Works’ Solid Waste Division has launched a new anti-littering campaign, “Talk Trash, Don’t Throw It.” The campaign consists of billboards, public service announcements and a website with information about recycling and other programs the City offers to help keep spaces clear of debris and trash.

City crews collect 18,000 tons of discarded litter from roadways, right-of-ways and vacant lots annually. Littering is more than an eyesore; it can impact the natural environment.

“We all have a stake in the City of Jackson and we should all do our part to keep this city clean and free of debris,” Yarber said. “This campaign has a strong enforcement component. We want to make people think twice before tossing litter on the ground.”

The City of Jackson operates a litter control program with three full-time crews removing debris to maintain right-of-ways Monday through Friday. To report litter on City of Jackson roadways, call 601-960-1111 or 601-960-0000.
