SWEEP - Solid Waste Education and Enforcement Programs
Litter Prevention Program

Anti-litter Campaign
Let's face it.  We all like to do some trash talking; however, when it comes to talking about trash, we do not like talking about it. Unfortunately, littering is not only a City, but a worldwide problem affecting the well being of wildlife and the natural environment.  Finally, the City of Jackson has developed an education program that suits all ages. This spunky program will stay with you and it will bring awareness to the litter and illegal dumping issues in our City.  

The City of Jackson operates litter control program with three full-time crews removing debris to maintain right-of-ways Monday through Friday. Please don't litter and report those who do. To report litter on City of Jackson roads contact: 311 or call 601-960-0000. Items that are located in the road and a hazard to drivers please report immediately.  

To report litter on state highways, intersections and frontage roads, contact MDOT at 601-359-7111.
