Keep Jackson County Beautiful recently purchased ClearStream recycling bins with plastic bags for collection of aluminum cans and plastic bottles during your special event/festival. These bins will assist your organization (or city) in making your event "Green."
The Event Planning Organization will be responsible for appointing a group to make arrangements to have the bins delivered or pick the bins up, for the bins while in place, and place new plastic bags in the bins when filled. An area should be set up to hold the bags and material until the event is completed. At that time, the filled bags can be returned to Keep Jackson County Beautiful for storage until a load is completed (we can make arrangements to pick the materials up) or you can make arrangements with a recycling center to take the materials. (Suggestions are available.) Event coordinators will be responsible for filling out the packet form, including the amount of recyclables and where they were carried. You will also be responsible for making arrangements to return all the bins to KJCB or scheduling a pickup time with KJCB.

KJCB looks forward to working as a partner in making your Special Event the best it can be and answering our citizens' needs to recycle. This is a new program for KJCB and we will be glad to hear any suggestions that you may have in making this work more smoothly.
