Jackson County Names Waste Management as New Service Provider –
Follow up re: new cart delivery and old cart removal

 

The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has named Waste Management as the County’s new solid waste service provider for residents in the unincorporated areas. Waste Management began servicing routes on July 1, 2018.  

 

Most residents should have gotten their new Waste Management trash and recycling carts by now. In addition, old Waste Pro and Delta Sanitation carts should have been picked up if they were left at the roadside with nothing in them. Residents who still have their old carts and/or have not received their new carts are asked to assist this process in the following ways:

 

If you have not received the “new” Waste Management carts

  • Contact Waste Management ASAP at 228-831-8900 to request they be delivered
  • You can let them know if others on your street haven’t received them either

 

If you still have Waste Pro or Delta Sanitation carts, please remember they will NOT be serviced by Waste Management. They are being removed by Waste Pro.

  • Waste Pro is continuing to pass through the County to collect their empty carts left at the roadside
  • Place the EMPTY Waste Pro/Delta cart upside down (or at least on their side) at roadside and leave them until they are removed
  • DO NOT put garbage in them or they will not be removed and they will not be serviced
  • If the empty carts have not been picked up by August 15, Contact Waste Pro at 228-818-5393

 

If you have old BFI, Red River, Allied, or other personal carts, they will be serviced by Waste Management as long as they are in operable condition, so you can keep and continue to use them. However if you do not want them, you can:

  • Drop them off at Waste Pro, 4205 Beasley Road in Gautier, Monday – Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. or
  • Waste Management will remove them ONLY IF resident places a “PLEASE REMOVE” note on the can. If there is not a note, they will assume you want to continue using them.
