Press Release: Jackson County Litter Removal Contract
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 19, 2021
As part of the ongoing efforts to help Keep Jackson County Beautiful the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners has initiated a Countywide Litter Removal contract with Collin’s Land Services, Inc. Under this contract Collin’s Land Service’s will provide pickup, removal, disposal of litter, and otherwise undesirable or objectionable appearing debris within the maintained limits of the County roadway right-of-way. There are approximately 522 road miles of county-maintained highways meaning around 1,045 miles of right of way. See the complete list of roads broken down by District.
Commencing on, Monday, May 24, 2021, the litter removal crews will begin their systematic sweep of the right of ways and estimate the first cycle to take around 45 days. Following the litter pick-up, Jackson County mowing crews will start their mowing cycle staying about 1 to 2 days behind the litter removal crews. This will be done to prevent litter from being torn, ripped, scattered or further sub-divided by the mower that would result in an objectionable appearance. Please be mindful of these crews working on the roadsides.
