Welcome to Project New Ground, a long-term effort to make Jacksonville a cleaner, greener city. Its goal is to correct a situation that began nearly 100 years ago, when the City of Jacksonville burned its solid waste in incinerators. Ash from those incinerators was deposited at four sites north and west of the downtown area. Project New Ground is the city's program to remove the ash from those sites.
We invite you to watch the six-minute Project New Ground video below and explore our website to learn more about Project New Ground. If you have any questions, we invite you to contact us for assistance.
