Please note:

We will not be open April 4, 2020

Recycling Jackson will be closed on April 4, 2020 in accordance with Gov. Whitmer’s Executive Directive 2020-21 which directs us all to stay at home unless absolutely necessary.

We understand the inconvenience that this causes and rest assured that we will re-open as soon as it is reasonably safe for you, our customers, our workers and our volunteers to be at the recycling site.

If you have any questions please email us at recyclingjackson@gmail.com.

Thank you for your understanding during these very difficult times.
