City's Blight Reduction Effort Offers Residents Cash for Trash

Discarded Tires and Snipe Signs Will Be Collected at Annual Buyback Event

Published Friday, September 27, 2019

 

Duval County residents can earn money while contributing to a cleaner city by participating in the City of Jacksonville’s sixth annual Tire and Sign Buyback. Along with a valid Duval County ID, citizens can bring discarded tires and illegal snipe signs (advertisements that are placed in the City right of way or on public property) to TIAA Bank Field’s parking lot J to receive 50 cents per sign for up to 40 signs, and $2 per tire, up to 10 tires. In 2018, more than $45,000 was paid to participants who collected 3,333 signs and 21,801 tires. Now in its sixth year, this event is hosted to improve neighborhoods throughout the city by reducing blight, which threatens public safety, lowers property values and decreases quality of life.
