Posted on 09/29/2021

JACKSON, Tenn. – The City of Jackson’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day enables residents to get rid of harmful waste from around their homes the right way and without harming the environment.

Collection Day returns to Jackson from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 164 Conalco Drive. The new location for this fall’s event is off North Parkway between North Royal Street and Dr. F.E. Wright Drive.

The Collection Day will also include electronic waste collection, document shredding, prescription medication drop-offs and cardboard recycling. Items that will be accepted on site are listed at http://stormwater.jacksontn.gov.

We will not accept latex paint, which can be dried until solid and thrown away in the regular garbage; used oil, which is accepted year-round at many places in Jackson; televisions; alkaline batteries which can be thrown in the regular trash. We also will not accept medical or infectious waste, ammunition and explosives, radioactive wastes, including smoke detectors, and any empty containers.

Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Waste (i.e. wastes from non-household sources such as businesses, schools, farms, churches, etc.) is acceptable by appointment only. Call 615-643-3170 to request a price quote and schedule an appointment.

This is a free opportunity for residents to do their part to help keep harmful wastes out of our landfills and stormwater system and to participate in recycling programs within our community.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is sponsored by the City of Jackson’s Stormwater Management Department, Health and Sanitation Department, Omega Recycling Solutions, Direct Shred, and Jackson-Madison County Metro Narcotics. Hazardous waste disposal costs are paid for by Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.
