Rubbish heap

DeSoto County residents who take advantage of the county rubbish facility at 5255 West Sandidge Road in Olive Branch will need to be aware of new Saturday hours for the winter months.

According to Ray Laughter, Director of Environmental Services and Parks & Greenways, the rubbish facility will now be open Saturdays from 7 a.m. to noon through March 31.

Laughter pointed out that the hours are changing for Saturdays only, that they will remain the same during the week, from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“The DeSoto County Rubbish Facility is for disposal of non-household garbage, leaves, limbs, furniture,” said Laughter. “There are recycle drop offs located onsite for appliances, TVs, e-waste and tires.”

DeSoto County citizens are allowed four free visits to the rubbish pit each month. For more information, call the office at 662-469-8152 or 662-469-8000.
