Today is the first day of Spring, and many people were already out this weekend doing some raking and picking up.
Spring yard waste collection is about to begin for many Des Moines area communites.
Metro Waste is one of the largest contractors. They will pick up yard waste starting April 3, using Compost It bags or stickers.
Special Spring Clean Up days are also planned in April and May - look for your community on the list, below.
