Garbage Truck And Sanitation Worker

Garbage collection services in DeSoto County will be adjusting their schedules for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

All daily routes in Southaven, Olive Branch, Horn Lake and Hernando will run one day behind and there will be no collection on Monday, Dec. 25, Christmas Day, and again on Monday, Jan. 1, which is New Year’s Day.

The same schedule will be conducted through DeSoto County for the unincorporated residences, according to County Director of Environmental Services Ray Laughter.

Waste Pro USA will not provide service on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day and service will be one day late for the remainder of both weeks.

County curbside rubbish and debris collection will also be affected, as the county will not pick up those items on Christmas Day, Dec. 26 or Jan. 1.

The county rubbish facility at 5255 West Sandidge Road in Olive Branch will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
