Christmas tree recycling starts December 26th

Harrison County Beautification Committee and Mississippi Power are teaming up once again to recycle live Christmas trees following the holiday.

Trees can be dropped off December 26th to January 10th at Mississippi Power’s Plant Watson on Cowan-Lorraine Road, Rodenburg Avenue Highway 90 Parking Bay, Courthouse Road Pier in Gulfport, Long Beach Harbor, and Pass Christian Harbor.

Harrison County Beautification Director Trey McKnight said, “It’s a great thing for families who prefer to buy organic Christmas trees. It’s a way for us. What we are going to do is collect the trees, get them to a central location in the county and then grind them down into garden mulch. Then we’re going to use that mulch throughout the year for landscaping projects. It’s just an environmentally friendly way to dispose of them.”

For more information on these drop off sites call the beautification committee at 228-214-1405.
