Garbage & Recycling Information

Trash and Recycling Pickup

Waste Management is contracted by the city to pick up trash, yard waste, and recycling.  Trash is picked up on Wednesdays.  Waste Management observes the following six holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day. If a holiday is during the week, Monday through Friday, prior to your service day, collection will be delayed by one day. If the holiday is on Saturday or Sunday, your collection will not change. The holiday schedule is effective for all services including trash, yard waste, and recycling and only applies the week of the holiday. Service the week before and after the holiday will not be impacted.

Waste Management has asked the city of De Soto to provide a PDF that goes over recycling myths.  The link is provided below.  Please take time to read it, and check the Upcoming Events page for the days that recycling is picked up.
