Desoto Trash Schedule 2024 (Bulk Pickup, Holidays, Maps)

We’re here to help you find the Desoto trash pickup schedule for 2024 including bulk pickup, recycling, holidays, and maps.

The City of Desoto is in Texas with Dallas to the north, Waxachachie to the south, Lancaster to the east, Cedar Hill to the west, and Duncanville to the northwest.

If there’s a change to your normal trash collection schedule then there’s a good chance your street sweeping schedule has changed too so make sure to check for updates.

Desoto Trash Collection Calendar 2024

Trash is picked up twice weekly.

  • All residents who live west of Hampton Road have their garbage collected on Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • All residents east of Hampton are collected on Mondays and Thursdays.

Trash Pick Up Holidays

There is no trash pick-up on the following holidays should they fall on a weekday:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

If trash is rescheduled, then pick-up moves forward one day. For example:

Monday holidays, such as Labor Day, affect trash collection. In a week when a Monday holiday occurs, trash will not be collected on that Monday, and the entire week’s pickup schedule moves forward one day.
