Only Rain Down Storm Drains

The City of Jackson has produced a new public service announcement to remind the public that grease and other hazardous waste should not be poured down storm drains. Greasy wastes, such as cooking oil, will clog sewer lines.

It is illegal to dump hazardous waste or anything else into a storm drain. Water from a storm drain does not go to the waste water treatment plant. It flows directly into our waterways. Residents who witness someone illegally dumping material in a storm drain should call 601-960-0000 to report it.

The City’s Environmental Center, located at 1570 University Boulevard, is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to accept hazardous household waste, including paints,

driveway sealer, flammable waxes and abrasives, lacquers, mineral spirits, spray cans, stains, thinner, varnishes, caulks and adhesives, gasoline, motor oil, antifreeze, batteries, computers, electronics, pesticides and insecticides.

For more information, contact the Solid Waste Division at 601-960-0000.
