Project: Zero Waste to clean up Jackson County


Get this: we’re joining forces with local waste haulers and recyclers to offer Jackson County residents a chance to do some spring cleaning.

We’re calling the day “Project: Zero Waste,” and it offers a chance for county residents drop off materials like metal, plastic, paper, Styrofoam, tires, and e-waste to be disposed of in an environmentally-responsible manner. The day will take place Saturday, April 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Jackson County Fairgrounds.

Residents will have to pre-register to participate in the event. Most items will be taken free of charge, but some – like TVs, tires, and LP tanks – will carry a minimal charge.

Goodwill, Sam’s Club, Recycling Jackson, Northwest Refuse, Emmons Services, OmniSource, Rapid Refill Ink, Dart Container, Pak Mail, and HUCO Kurpinski Recycling – along with the City of Jackson, the Jackson County Fairgrounds, and American 1 – are pooling efforts and resources to ensure a “zero waste” policy.

Project: Zero Waste kicks off a weekend of events in Jackson that will celebrate Earth Day and environmental stewardship. There’s also a big event at Cascades park on Sunday, April 19 sponsored by the Jackson Outdoor Coalition.

County residents who want to participate can download a registration form online at, or pick one up at any branch. Participating organizations will also have registration forms available. Registration forms are due by April 1.

A full list of accepted materials is also available at
