Hinds offers drop off sites for trees
Starting Dec. 26 through Jan. 2, Hinds County is offering several recycling sites for used live trees. The recycling program, Save One for the Chipper, will use the trees for mulch that will be used in city landscaping projects and also offered free to the public in January.
For safety reasons, ornaments, nails and tree stands should be removed. City drop-off sites are Mynelle Gardens, Parham Bridges Children's Playground, Sykes Park, Dizzy Dean Museum, Bailey Magnet School, Callaway High Scool, Forest Hill High School, Jim Hill High School, Lanier High School, McLeod Elementary School, McWillie Administrative Center, Murrah High School, Provine High School and Wingfield High School.
