Christmas tree recycling
You may be wondering what to do now with your real Christmas tree. Well, Harrison County now has a way for you to get rid of that tree and help the county’s green areas.
The Christmas tree recycling program is a partnership between the Harrison County Beautification Commission and Mississippi Power and runs through January 10th.
Recycled trees will be re-purposed as wood chips to be used in parks and gardens all across the county.
Before dropping off your tree at one of the five drop off locations, make sure to remove all lights, stands, and decorations from the tree. Chris Vignes with Mississippi Power said, “So, it’s really up to the family tradition. Some will take it down today and some will keep the Christmas spirit through the new year, so we’re fully prepared either way to collect from now until January 10th.”
The five drop off locations include:
- Mississippi Power’s Plant Watson
- The Long Beach Harbor
- The Pass Christian Harbor
- Courthouse Road Pier in Gulfport
- The parking bay near Rodenburg Avenue and Highway 90 in Biloxi.
