A newly implemented program will soon allow Jackson County residents to turn their yard waste into mulch.
“It can’t go to the landfill, and we don’t want them burning it,” said Debbie Hackman, director of the county’s Solid Waste Management District.
Hackman said Seymour residents have the luxury of having city
workers picking up yard waste and taking it to a composting site at Freeman Field.
And that’s something county residents will soon have access to, thanks to an agreement between the district, the city and the county highway department.
Commissioners approved that
interlocal agreement Tuesday during their meeting at the courthouse annex.
