A final decree, regarding annexation, was provided by Judge Percy Lynchard, April 27, 2021. In this decree, Judge Lynchard ruled that the City of Olive Branch would receive approximately 18.8 square miles of unincorporated DeSoto County. The annexation is effective May 28, 2021 which means that all property within the annexed area is now included in the City of Olive Branch.

There is no change to your current garbage service. Waste Pro will continue to provide garbage collection of the annexed area through September 30, 2023. Trash/rubbish (curbside limbs, etc.) will be collected by Olive Branch on a route basis beginning today, May 28th.
