Jackson County Plastic Round-Up
Fri – Sat May 16-17, 2014, 9:00-4:00
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.
Businesses & Large Loads Only
Non-residential OR loads larger than a pick-up truck ONLY! For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name, phone number and the type of plastics you have.
Results of the Fall 2014 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.
