BatteriesRecology CleanScapes offers free curbside collection of button, alkaline, and rechargeable batteries for Des Moines garbage service customers.

Commercial, apartment and condominium customers must call to arrange collection. Service must be requested by the bill payer on record. Please DO NOT set batteries next to carts/containers.

Single-family residential customers, please follow these instructions to recycle batteries:

  • Place button, alkaline, and/or rechargeable batteries in a sealed plastic bag and place on top of your recycling cart (not inside).
  • Motor vehicle batteries are not accepted in your curbside recycling. Most battery retailers and auto repair shops accept spent batteries for recycling.
