Des Moines garbage collection pushed back one day during holiday weeks

Garbage, recycling and compost collection customers served by CleanScapes in Des Moines may experience a change in collection day during the upcoming holiday season.

CleanScapes operates regularly on all holidays except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

If a CleanScapes customer’s regularly scheduled collection day falls on Thanksgiving Day, CleanScapes will collect the material on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

If the regularly scheduled collection day is Friday, the customer’s materials will be collected on Saturday.

Also, with Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on weekdays, all subsequent collections for the rest of the work week will be delayed one day and Friday’s material will be collected on Saturday.
