The City of Olive Branch and the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors are working together to address garbage changes that affect the newly annexed areas in the City of Olive Branch. If you live in an area that was annexed in 2021, your garbage and recycling will change effective October 1, 2023  from Waste Pro to Waste Connections. All billing for garbage and recycling will come from the City Utilities Department. If you already receive services from the City (i.e. water, sewer, and/or gas), you do not have to fill out a new application. Your services will be consolidated on your billing.
