Christmas Tree Recycling
Jackson County’s solid waste department will collect Christmas trees for recycling beginning today. Recycling of Christmas trees saves space in local landfills and discourages illegal dumping. The purpose of this collection is to turn the trees into composting material in order to improve soil conditions at the landfills. But before you go…make sure to remove all lights, ornaments and stands before dropping off your tree. And obviously artificial trees will not be accepted. Here are the drop-off locations in Jackson County.
• Jackson County Landfill
• Vancleave Ball Park
• Jackson County East Road Barn
• Jackson County West Road Barn
• Jackson County Fairgrounds
Trees can also be placed on your curbside for your regularly scheduled trash collection days.
