It’s not too early to start planning on what to do with your Christmas tree after the holidays. Jackson County’s Solid Waste Department will again collect and recycle Christmas trees starting December 26 through January 31 at five locations:
* Jackson County Rubbish Site - 10501 Seaman Rd., Vancleave
* Jackson County Recreation Department - Ball Park Rd., Vancleave
* Jackson County West Roads Department - Hwy 609
* Jackson County East Roads Department - Hwy 63
* Jackson County Fair Grounds in Pascagoula
Recycling Christmas trees saves space in our local landfills and discourages illegal dumping. The County landfill processes old Christmas trees into composting material and it will be used to improve soil conditions at the landfill.
Tree collection sites will be clearly marked. Residents are asked to remove trees from bags and take off all ornaments, lights, and stands before dropping off a tree. Flocked trees will be taken but artificial trees will not be accepted. Trees can also be placed curbside for regularly scheduled rubbish collection days in unincorporated areas.
