Helping Jackson County Recycle

Recycling Jackson’s purpose is to coordinate, plan, and advocate for a clean, healthy environment in Jackson County through recycling.

Since 1983, Recycling Jackson (RJ) has focused on establishing recycling sites in Jackson County and educating children and adults about the benefits of recycling. Local interest and involvement in recycling has increased since RJ’s founding due in part to RJ’s services and educational efforts.

A group of volunteer RJ board members are committed to expanding recycling throughout the county. We are also increasing our education and outreach programming, and we are working to convince public officials to include recycling in county solid waste plans.

Here is our 2016 Recycling Guide.  It’s a double-sided trifold brochure, for those who want to print it.

PLEASE NOTE: Our prices have changed for recycling CRT televisions and monitors as it has become more expensive for us to recycle them. CRT means cathode ray tube style televisions and monitors — not flat panel.

For CRT-style computer monitors and televisions up to 19-inch, the fee is $10 per item. 19 to 27 inch CRT televisions are $20 each; over 27 inch CRT televisions are $30 each and projection televisions are $40 each.

Our recycler doesn’t accept them and there has been much abuse (as in garbage and other matter) in the bags we’ve received. Meijer, Kroger and other big box stores accept plastic bags for recycling free of charge. We recommend you recycle them there. Better yet – request paper bags or take your own reusable bags when shopping.

 

Recycling Jackson is a non-profit organization. We are not a government agency, and we do not receive government subsidies that defer our operating costs. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated and help us keep Jackson County green.
