Walton County Solid Waste Department Partners with Topsail Hill Preserve State Park to Expand Recycling Program
The Walton County Department of Solid Waste and Topsail
Hill Preserve State Park are pleased to share the exciting news of a
brand new recycling partnership. This valuable partnership provides a
professional solution to the park’s ongoing recycling collection needs.
On August 24th, Walton County Solid Waste Manager Jeff
Massey and Assistant Manager Billy McKee, delivered a blue recycling
collection trailer to Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. Walton County is
providing the blue recycle trailer and will conduct weekly collection
of the recyclables.
“I was excited when the staff at Topsail Hill Preserve
State Park contacted us about working with them concerning recycling,”
said Jeff Massey, Walton County Solid Waste Manager. “I look forward to
working with Management at Topsail as this is the kind of partnership
that not only creates awareness for recycling, but community awareness
for the great assets like Topsail that exist in Walton County.”
This allows Topsail Hill to provide another supervised
location for local recyclers to drop off their paper, plastic and
“Topsail Hill Preserve State Park is pleased to partner
with Walton County Solid Waste and Recycling Department,” said Topsail
Hill Preserve Assistant Park Manager Vicki Tiseth. “We are excited to offer
this recycling opportunity not only to our park visitors but also to
members of our local community. The park encourages everyone to take
advantage of this convenient recycling location.”
Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the Walton County
Solid Waste Department are looking forward to continued partnership
opportunities and are planning additional recycling events to be held
within the park.
The delivery of the recycling trailer to Topsail
continues the expansion of the Solid Waste Department’s recycling
efforts. Previously, the Department delivered a trailer to Sandestin as
a part of a partner recycling effort with the Sandestin Owners
About Topsail Hill Preserve State Park
This 1,640-acre park features a variety of habitats: pristine beaches, freshwater coastal dune lakes, old-growth longleaf pine forests and wetlands. Evidence from midden mounds (discarded debris from Native American communities) and a large mound adjacent to the park, indicate that Native Americans used this area for fishing, hunting and camping. From the late 1800s to the mid-1900s, workers from the Quarters Turpentine Village turpentined old-growth longleaf pines in forests now part of Topsail Hill. The park offers RV camping, cabins, a swimming pool, beach access and many other amenities.
