Harrison County Utility Authority Releases Solid Waste Collection Guidelines in Quarterly Newsletter

In an effort to promote more efficient debris collection around the county, the Harrison County Utility Authority (HCUA) has released solid waste collection guidelines to help educate residents on the proper method of disposing solid waste and debris for weekly collection. Solid waste is defined as the type of waste that is placed curbside that is not placed in the household garbage or recycling bins such as leaves, limbs, furniture and other authorized items placed curbside.

The attached guidelines can be also found on HCUA’s Facebook page or online at www.hcua-ms.us/solid-waste. HCUA also reminds its residents that all solid waste will be collected on the same day as their weekly garbage and recycling collection days. If residents are unsure what days those are or they are new to the area, an updated map can also be found at https://www.hcua-ms.us/solid-waste.

The release comes after announcing that solid waste partner, Pelican Waste and Debris, is adding additional routes to the HCUA service area, which will begin immediately and run for the remainder of the year. The new routes come after the cities and county have seen an increase of 3,800 homes served since 2017, which has led to an increase in solid waste collection of 800 tons per month on average.
