Jackson deep-sixes recycling program

News

The City of Jackson will suspend its curbside recycling program. A spokesperson for the city says there will be one more pickup before August 31.

The city says at least three hundred additional municipalities have also recently suspended their programs as demand for recycled materials has fallen off.

The Department of Public Works is looking for an alternative collection site for residents and says they will provide notice when they find an appropriate location.
