JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

In the days following Christmas, people start taking down the decorations that adorned their homes for the holiday season. This includes either disposing of a live tree or packing up an artificial one for use next year.

Many prefer natural, live Christmas trees over the artificial alternative. For some, it’s tradition. For others, it’s about the smell and beauty of a living tree in the house.

There are several locations along the coast that are taking live trees for recycling. The trees will be stripped down and chipped to use as mulch in local landscaping projects.

Trees can be dropped off in Jackson County at the following locations:

    Until Jan. 12, 2016

    • Ocean Springs Civic Center – 3730 Bienville Boulevard
    • Ocean Springs Public Works Department – 712 Pine Drive

    Until Jan. 31, 2016

    • Jackson County Rubbish Site – 10501 Seaman Road, Vancleave
    • Jackson County Recreation Department – Ball Park Road, Vancleave
    • Jackson County West Roads Department – Highway 609
    • Jackson County East Roads Department – Highway 63
    • Jackson County Fairgrounds in Pascagoula

    Harrison County residents can drop off their trees between Dec. 28, 2015 and Jan. 15, 2016 at any of the following sites:

    • the parking bay at Rodenberg Avenue and U.S. 90, Biloxi
    • the Ken Combs Pier parking lot at Courthouse Road and U.S. 90, Gulfport
    • Mississippi Power Plant Watson on Lorraine Road, Gulfport
    • the parking bay by the pavilion and U.S. 90, Long Beach
    • the parking area at the West Harbor, Pass Christian
    • the county work center off U.S. 67, Woolmarket
    • at the Bobby Eleuterius Sports Complex behind D'Iberville Elementary on Brodie Drive, D'Iberville 

    Officials warn that all ornaments, lights, tree stands, nails and other metal attachments be removed from trees before being dropped off. Otherwise, the trees will not be able to be recycled and will go in a landfill. Any trees left curbside will also be sent to a landfill instead of being recycled.
