Recycling How Does It Work?
Keep Jackson Beautiful is pleased to announce that Recycling is back in the Capital City. Keep Jackson Beautiful, the City of Jackson Replenysh, Niagara, the International Bottle Water Association and local recycling companies EnvironMentality and Allen's Recycling partnered to implement a recycling program for the citizens of Jackson, MS. “The water crisis placed the focus on collecting water bottles, but this recycling program is more than just water bottles. We are collecting PET plastics #1 water and soft drinks bottles with some locations will be accepting PET #2 plastics detergent bottles and cardboard.
Collect Your PET #1 Bottles
Dump Bottles into Sacks
Currently we are only accepting Plastic PET #1 Water Bottles. As the program grows new materials will be added. As you are saving your plastic containers please make sure your bottle are emptied of liquid. Caps and labels can remain on the bottles.
Click the link above to find a recycling collection site close to you. It will have the hours of operation as well as the type of materials collected. As new sites are added they will be listed.
Just dump your bottles empty containers into the sacks. Please do not include garbage or any type of pages in the sacks. Only BOTTLES that have the #1 inside the recycling symbol.
NO GARBAGE PLEASE!
It contaminates the load!

What We Do?
Keep Jackson Beautiful, Inc. is a non-profit, certified local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful dedicated to changing attitudes and behavior towards environmental issues such as littering and recycling. Our programs focus on education, litter reduction, recycling and beautification of Jackson.
Keep your yard clean and free of things that can blow into the street and become litter. Set an example by not littering. Litter is also expensive. The annual cost of roadside litter is $115 million a year. Keep a litterbag in your car.
Forests and plants are not only essential to the health and livability of our cities and towns, they're good for our wallets! Trees that are planted within fifty feet of a residence can raise property values by 9%. You can make a difference.
