Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day

Need to get rid of some oil-based paint, adhesives or paint thinners? Old computers?

The spring Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is April 21! Get rid of items you can’t put in the trash, and help us protect the environment!

From pesticides to old computers and oven cleaners, many things around our homes will harm the environment if we throw them in the regular trash. Residents can help by bringing hazardous products they no longer need to the City of Jackson’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.

The event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, is a free opportunity to get rid of these items the right way so they don’t get in the landfill or stormwater system, which flows into our rivers and streams, said Wendy Braxter-Rhyne, Stormwater Program Manager for the City of Jackson.

“You can help protect our environment by bringing the hazardous items you no longer need to the collection site at 112 Union Ave. behind the Farmer’s Market in downtown Jackson.”
