    Public Works: 601.853.2027

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The City of Ridgeland’s Public Works Department maintains streets, water and sanitary sewers, storm drains and ditches, water tanks and water wells, as well as city facilities. The Department is also charged with monthly water meter readings, city vehicle maintenance, and the operation of a cemetery. Their services are provided for the health, safety and welfare of Ridgeland citizens.

Major Road and Multi-Use Trail Projects

The City will include an additional trail when Lake Harbour Drive is extended from Highway 51 to Highland Colony Parkway, as well as Colony Park Boulevard. The Department is currently in the right-of-way acquisition phase of the extension project. The City will also be constructing a trail segment on East Jackson Street that will extend the multi-use trail to the Trace Ridge subdivision.

Leading the Way in Recycling

Ridgeland is the only city in Mississippi that utilizes a curbside cart recycling program that provides recycling rewards. Participants can receive discounted or free items from nationally known chains including McDonald’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, Dick’s Sporting Goods and other popular retailers through RecycleBank.

Currently, the Recycle Bank rewards are only available to residents. The Department is working to add commercial areas to the recycling collection program.

Solar Powered Recycling Compactors have been installed at two outdoor recreational facilites in the City. The Department has plans to install a total of 10 compactors at several locations throughout the City. This will increase the amount of recycling in our public parks.

The Public Works Department conducts an asphalt recycling program. Ridgeland seeks to reduce waste and recycle in as many areas as possible at this time.

Sewer Maintenance Projects

In the coming year, the Public Works Department will be replacing several sewer lines. The locations of these lines include Gateway North Subdivision and East Madison County Regional Sewer. A sewer lift station will also be removed this year.
