What to Recycle.jpg 

So, why is recycling important?
  • Saves taxpayer’s dollars
  • Saves landfill space
  • Reduces pollution
  • Preserves and conserves natural resources
  • Prevents water supply contamination from hazardous waste runoff
  • Recycling transforms old products into new, reusable items

What can I recycle?

Jackson is a single-stream program - all recyclable materials together in your recycling container. No sorting or separation!

Newspaper, office paper, junk mail, magazines and phone books
Plastic: Bottles (#1 – 7 plastic), milk jugs, water bottles and soda bottles
Cans:   Aluminum, steel and soda cans
Cardboard: Corrugated

Items, such as hazardous waste can be recycled but cannot be placed in the container. These items can be brought to our drop-off center (see information below).

Recycling Instructions
