Solid Waste

Jackson County is a member of the  Jackson County Recycling Partnership (JCRP).  JCRP provides a collaborative forum for the County, cities, waste haulers and citizens to foster awareness of waste prevention, hazardous waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting throughout the County.  JCRP quarterly meetings are open to the public and the County encourages citizen involvement.  JCRP funds and directs the Jackson County Master Recycler Program, which educates citizen volunteers to serve as waste diversion ambassadors in their communities.
