Fall event has condluced. It was a huge success. Thank you to all that participated! We will be posting some event statistics very soon!
saturday, October 25-26 2013!
Location: Jackson County Expo, 1 Peninger Rd., Central Point at gate 1.5, the gravel lot just past the Family Fun Center
Time: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm both days
Cost: Still $5.00 per household or $5.00 per cubic yard for businesses and large loads
It is more important than ever to bring in clean and pre-sorted plastic in the categories of hard, soft and nursery. The plastic recycling markets are demanding 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 fee to transport the plastic to the recycler, and rental of the event venue. If successful in covering event costs, JCRP will be much more likely to continue the Round-up as a unique recycling opportunity. Asking homes and businesses to bear the expense of managing their own waste enables JCRP to offer the event; JCRP does not sell or earn money on the plastic. Also noteworthy: to dispose of the plastic at the Rogue Disposal Transfer Station for landfilling the fee would be a minimum of $17.40, so it is also an opportunity for consumers to save money.
Businesses and 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 Spring 2013 Round-up:
We held our first ever spring round-up in early April. It was a great success! 63 volunteers (59 of them Master Recyclers) recycled 30,605 lbs. of plastic, from 660+ participants. It filled 3 and 3/4 53-ft. semi-trucks. We received literally dozens of comments from customers that are excited about the potential to hold this event twice per year. The plastic that arrived was better sorted and cleaner than ever, an indication that many recyclers are really paying attention to getting it right.
