West Des Moines Annual Clean-Up Next Week

(West Des Moines, IA) -- The City of West Des Moines will hold its Annual Spring Cleanup June 5-9. Crews will pick up items on residents' regular garbage day.

Acceptable items include: mattresses, couches, small roles of carpet (up to 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter), end tables, fans, lamps, TVs, monitors and grills (with propane tanks removed).

 Items not accepted include appliances (such as air conditioners, water heaters, washers, dryers, dehumidifiers, etc.), propane gas grills, building materials, concrete, glass, construction and demolition waste, tires, vehicles/major auto parts, yard waste, hazardous waste, paint, oil, medical waste or poisons.

Residents are asked to only place as much as would fit in the bed of a pickup truck. If it’s reasonable that two individuals can lift it, crews will collect it.

 Bagged or boxed items will not be collected since these items can be placed in carts year-round or on the curb during a normal collection day with a $1.00 “extra trash” sticker. Crews will pick up items in their original box (such as an artificial Christmas tree in its original box). 

Spring Cleanup service is available to all West Des Moines residents eligible for City provided solid waste collection. Per City ordinance and similar to other solid waste collection, Spring Cleanup items should be placed out for collection no earlier than 5:00 p.m. the day before the scheduled pick-up day and by 6:00 a.m. the day of collection.

 Please Note: Since appliances are not accepted during Spring Cleanup, residents are urged to bring them to the WDM Public Services East facility, 560 S. 16th Street, on Saturday, June 10, from 8 a.m. to 12:00 (noon) for our Scrap Appliance and Metal Drop-off Event. For more information, visit the Public Services Department on the City’s website at www.wdm.iowa.gov.
