Allen did say that his team is considering offering residential recycling services, which will be determined following an internal meeting this Thursday. The City also referred Can man jackson mississippi to Tri-Miss Recyclingbut Tri-Miss Recycling confirmed that its drop-off locations only take scrap metal.
Deatra Hughes, secretary at City of Jackson Solid Waste Division, said that the City was exploring establishing a drop-off site for residents. In the meantime, Jackson residents can enlist one of several paid recycling pick-up programs offered by Environmentality Recycling Solutions.
The company operates on a bag system, and service options are based on the volume of recyclable items. The Environmentality team works with three main companies to dispose of recyclable materials. Environmentality sends its glass to Strategic Materials in Georgia, metals to the Can Man in Jackson, and routes paper and plastics through F. Recycling, also based in Jackson. Augustus said he did not know where materials end up afterward, adding that because the value of cardboard and paper is currently down, companies have little financial incentive to dispose of it.
So we don't ever have to sell the commodity, we can give it away. That's why ours is a higher price," he added. For this reason, he told the Jackson Free Press that if Environmentality Recycling Solutions were to begin offering a drop-off service, residents would have to pay a fee to cover waste inspection costs.
In addition to standard household recycling, Augustus said Environmentality is trying to branch out into other areas, such as food waste. While there has been some interest in the composting program, Augustus said, more people are needed to kickstart a program.
Environmentality is experimenting with sponsorship programs to increase access to recycling, especially for lower-income recyclers who cannot afford to participate in the pick-up program. They're more concerned about how they're going to pay their bills," he said.
