Ocean Springs clarifies garbage, recycling pick-up

Sun Herald | March 11, 2013

OCEAN SPRINGS -- Waste Pro of Mississippi -- formerly Delta Sanitation -- will continue to serve Ocean Springs residents and small business owners for curbside garbage and recycling pick-up, according to a press release from the city.

A flyer distributed in the last water bill contained outdated information.

Cost for service will be reduced from $16 to $12 per month, Mayor Connie Moran said.

Waste Pro will provide a free 96-gallon cart for garbage collection to all residents who need one. New carts will be distributed to residents who do not already have one beginning March 18. Residents who already have carts should continue to use them. Those residents who previously rented carts through the city will no longer pay that monthly rental fee.

If a resident needs an additional 96-gallon garbage cart, they should contact the city at 875-4176. Additional carts cost $5 per month, and will be added to the resident's water bill.
