Citizens of Jacksonville can help clean up the city, and earn cash while doing it!
Jacksonville citizens with a valid ID (i.e. driver’s license) can earn a cash reward for helping keep Jacksonville clean. Duval County residents can earn 50 cents per sign for up to 40 illegal snipe signs, and $2 per tire for up to 10 tires during the City’s annual Tire & Sign Buyback event. The event is part of the City of Jacksonville's Fight Blight initiative, focused on improving the quality of life in neighborhoods throughout the city. Blight threatens public safety, lowers property values and degrades quality of life.
Citizens can visit http://www.coj.net/departments/neighborhoods/neighborhood-blight/tire-buyback to find tools and resources and learn more about examples of blight in our city, and how they can help in the fight against blight. The event will begin at 8 a.m. in Lot J near EverBank Field.
