  1. Solid Waste Services

  2. Solid Waste Pickup

    The City of Jackson conducts weekly solid waste pickup for qualified residential customers (single-family, duplex, and zero-lot line condominium dwellings only).  For your neighborhood's scheduled pickup day, click here. This service is funded by City revenue and a nominal monthly fee (coded as TR on your monthly utility bill).

    Trash preparation guidelines:

    • Trash must be placed curbside by 8 AM on collection day.  Return trips are not made.
    • Maximum of three trash bags (no larger than 33 gallons each and weigh no more than 40 lb. each) are allowed per week for monthly charge. 
    • Don't mix yard waste bags with household waste bags. Yard waste does not count toward your three bag limit and is collected separately.
    • Additional bags are allowed, but each extra bag requires an official City trash sticker, available for purchase (one dollar each) at City Hall, 101 Court Street.
    • Any container holding trash and left at curbside will be thrown away with trash as long as weight is permissible; if weight is excessive, the trash will not be collected.
    • Motor oil, paint, tires, or any hazardous waste will not be collected.
    • Questions?  E-mail Public Works or call 573-243-2300.

    Yard Waste Pickup

    The City of Jackson conducts limited yard waste pickup for households that are the City's solid waste pickup customers.  Yard waste is collected on the 1st and 3rd full weeks of each month (see Calendar of Events).

    Yard waste preparation guidelines:

    • Help prevent street flooding by keeping yard waste and debris out of street.
    • Yard waste must be stored separately from regular refuse, since it is picked up on a different collection round, by regular pickup truck or a garbage truck.
    • Yard waste must be in a disposable container with 33 gallon maximum capacity and weigh no more than 40 lb. each container.
    • Limbs must be tied in bundles no longer than 5 ft. in length, no more than 18 in. in diameter, and weigh no more than 75 lb. each bundle.
    • Self disposal of yard waste can be done by Jackson residents ONLY (no commercial haulers) at the yard waste bins, located at the Recycling Center, 508 Eastview, during regular City business hours.  YARD WASTE CAN NOT BE DROPPED OFF AFTER HOURS.
    • Yard waste is collected as time allows during each pick-up week. Due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, there may be a delay in yard waste collection.  Therefore your yard waste may not get picked up the same day as your regular trash or it may be delayed by a week.
    • Questions?  E-mail Public Works or call 573-243-2300.
