Transfer Station

The Jackson Transfer Station, Recycling Center and Swap Shop is located in the municipal complex behind the Fire Station and is available to all Jackson residents.

The Spring 2018 Brown Goods Day will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2017 from 8 AM until 4 PM. No tires unless signed up. The late date is due to weather conditions not allowing people to get an early start on their clean up.  Do not ask to bring Brown Goods before this date as they are crushed that day and the transfer station has no place to store these items and our state licensing does not allow us to store them.
