April 29 - May 3, 2019
Several years ago Jackson Township was mandated by state law to provide collection of yard waste from residential properties at least once per year. Yard waste includes tree and shrubbery trimmings with branches not more than 6 inches in diameter and other organic landscape vegetation.Yard waste does NOT include:
Grass Clippings, Tree Trunks, Tree Stumps, Dirt and Stones, Fruits and Vegetables, Root Balls, Treated, Stained or Painted Wood, Bamboo or Wooden Furniture!!
Yard waste can be placed in biodegradable brown paper bags or bundled or piled at the curb or paved road edge before 7:00 AM April 29, 2019. Yard waste in plastic bags WILL NOT be collected. Any material not considered collectible that is placed on any part of the paved road surface will be pushed off the road onto adjacent property for the property owner's disposal responsibility.
This pick-up service is intended as a spring time convenience for residential property owners. It is not an opportunity to clean-out wood lots, clear land for crops or grazing, or for wholesale preparation for complete landscape redecoration.
