Jackson Celebrates Grand Opening of First Curbside Recycling Center

JACKSON, Tenn. - Jackson is celebrating today the grand opening of the city’s new recycling center.

“We want to encourage everyone, whether they have a knowledge of recycling or not, we’re here to help, we’re here to teach, we have attendants available to be able to do that. So, coming in, whether you know how to recycle or not, we’re going to help you through that, we’re going to help you sort it. Give you some examples and educate you on that… that’s the point of this recycling center.”

Recycling coordinator Robin Chance is excited to help Jackson refuse, reuse, and recycle.

That’s right, refuse.

Chance is changing the original phrase by using refuse instead.

By “refuse” she means encouraging the community to refuse using materials that cannot be reused or recycled.

“Once we found out the plastics, we were recycling weren’t getting recycled, and so starting that process to here feels great, so know this is a great first step in that process to bringing curbside recycling to Jackson.”

Mayor Scott Conger reports he has been working with other city leaders to bring curbside recycling that community members can trust will recycle their plastics, paper, and metals.

If you would like to recycle your materials, but do not know how, chance assures attendants can help you and teach you.

Mayor Conger reports this is the first but won’t be the last curbside recycling center.

You can drop off your paper, plastics, and metals at 74-B Conalco Drive.
