Utilities and Services

The City of De Soto charges and collects payment for Trash, Sewer, and Water.  

Other utilities will be listed below.

Payment for trash, sewer, and water services are due by 4:00 pm on the 15th of each month.

If not received, penalties will be applied, and a delinquent/disconnect notice will be sent.Payments not received by the designated due date will be subject to shut off and a $75 reconnect fee due before water will be turned back on. You can call the City Hall at 515-834-2234 with any questions. We also offer payment by Visa or MasterCard. We can help you set up monthly ACH payment which automatically transfers the monthly amount due from your checking or savings account on the 15th of each month (or next business day after if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday). If you choose to use electronic bill pay please allow sufficient time for processing and mailing of these. A night drop box is available outside City Hall as well.

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.
