Your Three Carts

Whether you are a business owner, property manager, or resident, Recology CleanScapes works with you to develop tailored solutions to your recycling, composting, and garbage collection needs.


RecycleBin

FOOD SCRAPS & YARD DEBRIS
All food scraps, food-soiled paper (without shiny plastic coating), approved compostable packaging and bags, yard waste and untreated wood go in the green food and yard waste bin.

RecycleBin

RECYCLING
Clean paper and cardboard, plastic containers, glass and metal.  Des Moines residential, multi-family and commercial garbage service includes recycling collection at no additional charge.

LandfillBin

GARBAGE
What’s left?  Not much!  Non-recyclable paper or plastics (saran wrap and food packaging), foam trays and containers, empty paint cans, pet litter, broken glass and ceramics to name a few.  We aim to send as little material to the landfill as possible.
