[ARCHIVED] DPW collecting household trash, yard waste at City Cleanup Event on Saturday, Sept. 18

Jackson residents looking to get rid of yard waste and trash have an upcoming opportunity. The City of Jackson is holding a City Cleanup Event on Saturday, Sept. 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Department of Public Works (DPW) Operations Center near Downtown Jackson. The event is free and open to all City residents. 

Residents are asked to stay in their vehicles and drive through the drop off zones, entering using the intersection of Water and Morrell streets, and exiting using Franklin Street. Yard waste, such as grass clippings and brush are accepted, along with general household trash like boxes and furniture. The following is a list of items that WILL NOT be accepted: Batteries, tires, kitchen garbage, paint, liquid waste, appliances that contain or have contained freon, all hazardous waste, electronics, motor oil. 

Staff working the events will be checking bags to make sure they do not contain prohibited items. Because these events are funded by the City, they are only open to City of Jackson residents. Identification that shows City residency will be checked before you are allowed access to the drop off zones. 

City Public Information Officer Aaron Dimick says the DPW hosted two successful cleanup events earlier this spring. “Our first two events removed a lot of trash and yard waste from properties across Jackson. Events like this help residents in making sure properties look their best,” Dimick said. 

The DPW Operations Center is located at 521 Water St. Updates about the cleanup event will be posted on the City’s Facebook page and website.
