Please understand we are unable to re-open the previous sites due to extremely high contamination rates with containers being unsupervised. Landfill staff will now be screening all recycled loads for unacceptable items including any items that have not been rinsed well. Any items turned down may be taken back to your residence for curbside pickup or you may pay a tipping fee to dispose of the items during your visit. Make your recycling efforts count and help us help DeSoto County RECYCLE again!
