Announcement from the Jackson Recycling Station*
The Jackson Recycling Station (5717 Wales Ave., NW) is experiencing three factors simultaneously which have had significant impact on our daily operations. First, the commodities market in which we resell recycled materials is at an all-time low with respect to all materials we collect. The low sale prices have negatively affected our budget projections for 2019. Second, a local waste removal company recently ceased its curbside recycling program in Stark County. The result has been an increase in customers seeking our service and a significant increase in the amount of recyclable materials being collected at the Jackson Recycling Station. Lastly, due to the under-performing resale market, we are not in a financial position to increase staffing commensurate with the increase in demand for our services.
The Jackson Recycle Station’s Board* has decided to implement new hours of operation in response to these factors, as follows:
Monday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Tuesday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Friday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Recycling Station staff will continue to work on site after closing to process
the material taken in during the new hours of operation. It is our long term desire to return to our former
hours of operation when market forces permit. Jackson Recycle Station Board thanks you for your patience and
Recycling Station is operated by an independent board.
