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.  

Bulk Items Program

Residents can place two bulk items at your curbside every second collection day. These items include furniture, mattresses, box springs, microwaves, radios, televisions, sofas, stoves,  limbs, and bagged leaves.

Curbside Recycling Program 

The City of Jackson encourages recycling and presently provides opportunities for all of its residents to recycle. Curbside Recycling utilizes an 18-gallon bin and recycling is collected on an every other weekly basis. Expansion of our curbside program is presently underway. If, you do not live in an area that currently participates in curbside collection, please feel free to email or call us at 601-960-0000. We have a drop-off site for your recyclables.
