Why the City of Jackson does not recycle glass?

Due to  the inherent safety issue of working with glass, the special equipment require, the low market value, and the lack of processing and manufacturing plants, the City of Jackson does not provide curbside collection of glass.

The Solid Waste Division is continuously seeking recycling opportunities and economical ways to reuse materials instead of disposing of the items in our landfill.
