Jackson County Plastic Round-Up
The date for the 2014 Fall Event is
Friday and Saturday, October 24 & 25
We can no longer accept VHS or Cassette tapes. We will be working with a new processor and it has affected the list of what is and is not accepted at the event. Click here for a flyer with all the details.
Location: Jackson County Expo, 1 Peninger Rd, Central Point, Gate 1.5 (gravel lot just past the Family Fun Center)
Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm both days
Cost: $5.00 per household (not per vehicle); $5.00/cubic yard for businesses & large loads
Only clean and presorted plastic will be accepted. Sort plastic into 3 categories: soft, hard, and nursery. The plastic recycling markets demand high quality materials. We want to ensure that our event provides that so we can hold future events!
About the Fee
This fee covers the cost of the event, including the freight to transport your plastic to the recycler, and rental of the event venue. We ask homes and businesses to fund their part and make the event possible. Note: to dispose of the plastic at the Rogue Disposal Transfer Station for landfilling, the fee would be a minimum of $18.00, so it is also an opportunity for consumers to save money.
Results of the Fall 2013 Plastic Round-up:
Success! Six full semi-truckloads were delivered to the recycler. The plastic weighed 69,200. There were about 1,100 participating households and businesses. The public did its best job yet of bringing clean and pre-sorted plastic.
