The Curbside Recycling program is an important part of the waste reduction and sustainability goals for the City of Hattiesburg. Since the beginning of the program in January 2015, residents have recycled over 200 tons of material that would otherwise have gone into a landfill, and they are now be able to recycle more with the new, wheeled 65-gallon bins. The recycling program is growing every day, and all Hattiesburg residents are invited to sign-up.
