Spring/Fall Cleanup Schedule - Jackson South Park Yard Debris Drop-Off

 

At the March 26, 2019, Jackson Township Board of Trustees’ meeting, the Board announced the Yard Debris Waste Site would open on Friday, March 29, 2019, for the 2019 season.  The hours of operation will be as follows:

 

Effective March 29, 2019 until further notice:

 

Monday                                               10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Tuesday                                              Closed

Wednesday                                         Closed

Thursday                                             Closed

Friday                                                  10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Saturday                                             10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Sunday                                               10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

 

The opening on Friday, March 29, 2019, will operationally mirror the 2018 operational format.  For instance, the site is for residents only and commercial contractors and non-residents are prohibited from using the site.  The same rules and regulations remain in effect as adopted by the Board of Trustees on April 24, 2018 (see Resolution 18-071).  Likewise, the site will be monitored by law enforcement for compliance with the rules and regulations.

 

The Board of Trustees of Jackson Township had previously approved the installation of a gated entry system controlled by a key card for the site.  However, the installation of the equipment is still ongoing.  The goal is to fit the site with a gated entrance and exit, in which entrance to the site will be controlled by a key card issued to residential households in the unincorporated area of Jackson Township.  The Jackson Township Administration is working on developing an on-line website link, which will allow residents to register to obtain a key card to access the site.  The Board of Trustees voted and established a nominal annual fee for the key card as follows:

 

            On-line registration                  $10.00

            In-person registration              $20.00

 

Once the online registration website is ready an announcement will be made to residents to begin the registration process.  Key cards will have to be picked up in person at the Jackson Township Administration Building during normal hours of operation.  The goal is to have the site converted to the key card access by May 1, 2019. 

 

The Board of Trustees has instituted the following rules in regards to the use of the site:

  • No commercial lawn and/or commercial tree service may use the site.

  • No tree or plant branches larger than two (2”) inches in diameter, and longer than four (4’) feet.

  • No cut trees

  • No logs

  • No stumps

  • No construction materials, no treated wood

  • No dirt, no stones

When using the site be prepared for your debris to be inspected for rule compliance and to show proof of residency. Enforcement of the aforementioned rules is key to the sustainability of the site.

As we transition to the new key card system, we ask residents to monitor the Township’s website and Facebook page for the potential of additional announcements regarding the registration process.  Thank you.
