Recycling Service

Recycling means less waste in your dumpster! Which could possibly mean they need emptying less often...

You may be able to cut your trash collection in half!

Recycling means collecting, separating, processing, marketing and ultimately using a material that would have been thrown away.

Recycling reduces pollution, energy consumption and water usage from the manufacturing of new products.

Aluminum Cans

We pay for aluminum cans that your bring in.

We DO NOT take aluminum siding, windows, doors or gutters etc...


JRE is proud to be able to offer recycling services, but it is important to remember how recycling helps both you and the environment.


The aluminum is placed in our crushing machine for compacting...


We accept all types of cardboard for recycling by our workers...

Remember... It needs to be free of food and grease.

Recycling is vital to our environment...

In 2007 Jackson River Enterprises recycled over 2,000,000 pounds of recyclable material. Recycling is very important. It decreases the amount of trash going into the landfills and increases commerce in our area. JRE offers 8 community trailers located throughout the Alleghany Highlands.



We can recycle office paper, shredded paper, schoolwork papers (homework, test papers, etc.), notebook paper, hardcover books, paperback books, catalogues, magazines, sales papers and other inserts along with the newspaper.






You do not have to remove the labels.  We recycle plastics with the numbers 1 through 7.  These numbers are found inside the recycling sign on the container and is most commonly located on the bottom of the container.  We do not recycle plastic grocery bags, so please return them to the store from which you received them so they may be recycled.

Here are a few examples of different types of plastics we recycle and what number they are identified by: 
Number 1 Plastics - Soft drink, water and beer bottles; mouthwash bottles; peanut butter containers; salad dressing and vegetable oil containers; frozen food trays.
