Solid Waste Services

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

Trash Preparation Guidelines

  • Recyclables, including cardboard, will not be collected at the curb.  Please deliver all recyclables to the Recycling Center.
  • Trash must be bagged and 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 weighing no more than 40 pounds each) are allowed per week for the monthly charge.
  • Don't mix yard waste bags with household waste bags or household waste and yard waste in the same bag. Yard waste does not count toward your 3-bag limit and is collected separately.
  • Additional household waste bags are allowed, but each extra bag requires an official City trash sticker, available for purchase for $1 each at City Hall, 101 Court Street.
  • Only bags should be set out for pickup.  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, tires, or any hazardous waste will not be collected at the curb.
  • Paint cans can be collected in household trash if paint is completely dried and can is open.  Kitty litter can be used to solidify and dry liquid paint.
  • Sharp objects such as needles, broken glass, etc. must be in puncture-proof containers.
  • Trash bags are to be set behind the curb at the collection location, not in the street.
