Tree recycle drop off sites open December 26th in Harrison County
While Christmas is just around the corner before we know it, the holiday will have come and gone.
For those of you who have live Christmas trees and are wondering what you can do with your tree when Christmas is over, Mississippi Power and the Harrison County Beautification Commission have a solution for you that will also help spruce up the county.
Starting the day after Christmas, you can drop off your live Christmas tree at one of several locations throughout Harrison County.
Just be sure to remove any lights or decorations as well as the stand before you drop your tree off.
Recycled trees will be repurposed as wood chips to be used in parks and gardens. Mississippi Power Spokesperson Kaila Moran Griffith said, “We have drop off points all across the Mississippi Gulf Coast, including what’s really convenient for a lot of people-Plant Watson. It’s right off the interstate of Cowan-Lorraine Road. You can also do the Long Beach Harbor or the Pass Christian Harbor. There’s also locations in Biloxi. You can just drop off your Christmas tree, your live Christmas tree, after the holidays.”
For a list of all the drop off recycling sites, just head on over to Mississippipower.com.
Also remember to keep your live Christmas tree watered in the meantime so the tree does not get dried out and become a fire hazard.
