Community Cleanup
The City of Jackson Health and Sanitation Department is offering a Community Cleanup day on April 22 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. by organizing a bulk waste drop-off event at the Jackson Fairgrounds to help residents dispose of large items that are difficult to get rid of. The event will allow citizens to drop off items such as tires, mattresses, furniture, and bulk items over 50 lbs.

By offering a convenient and free way to get rid of bulky waste, the City of Jackson hopes to encourage more people to participate in keeping their neighborhoods clean and safe.
