Waste Management (Garbage & Recycling in unincorporated areas)
Garbage and Recycling services will not run on Thursday, October 29 due to significant power line and tree debris in the roadways. Residents will result in services being delayed by one day for the rest of the week. Waste Management will resume regular schedules on Monday, Nov. 2. Waste Management can be contacted at 228-831-8900.
Hurricane Debris - More Info to Come on Monday
The Board of Supervisors will discuss debris removal on Monday, Nov. 2 during their Board Meeting. Instructions on how debris should be placed roadside, including separating by by type of material, will be distributed at that time. Typically vegetative material (ie. trees, limbs) needs to be separated from other type of debris (ie. shingles, siding). Privacy fencing should also go in its own pile. Again, a detailed graphic will be sent out Monday after a final decision is made.
We will send out additional notifications, if any further closures to County offices are required. Residents are encouraged to follow the Jackson County Government Facebook page for updates as details become available.
