How Do I?
Bold New City Community Cleanup Initiative
As citizens of this city, we should have a desire to magnify its beauty by keeping our neighborhoods, schools, highways, and parks in excellent condition. Keeping Jackson clean and green is essential to improving the quality of life, economic growth and prosperity of the entire city. Here are a few points to remember:
 
  • For every 2,000 pounds of recycled paper, we conserve 7,000 gallons of chemical-free water.
  • Nearly 84% of household waste can be recycled.Plastic and aluminum takes approximately 500 years to decompose in a landfill.
  • Dumping tires illegally can clog drainage ditches and creeks. 

We will leave a more sustainable future for our children and grandchildren if we seize opportunities to make a difference in our community. All Jackson residents have a right to participate in the decisions which affect their lives and the city in which they live. To see a difference, we must be the difference. Collectively, we have the power to make Jackson THE BOLD NEW CITY! 

This is our City! To see a difference, we must be the difference! Join your family, friends, neighbors, city officials, and community for the Bold New City Community Cleanup Initiative and let’s begin the work of uplifting this city.
