The Department of Road Management provides a free pick-up service for disposal of leaves, limbs, and other non-household waste items(please review acceptable and non-acceptable items below.) This service is for residents in the unincorporated area of DeSoto County. Leaves must be bagged and limbs must be lengths no longer than 4 feet. Please place items at the roadside for pick up. We have 6 trucks in service daily. Each truck runs their specified route allowing every resident to have pick up every 7 to 10 business days. Pick up days vary depending on the demand. Spring time brings larger amounts of rubbish causing extended pick up times. Each resident has the option to haul their rubbish to a Rubbish Pit for free. This allows residents 4 free visits per month. Locations listed below:
DeSoto County Rubbish Pit: 5255 W. Sandidge Road, Olive Branch
Starlanding Rubbish Pit: 9353 Starlanding Rd, Lake Cormorant
