Recycling, yard waste, and garbage will not be collected on Monday, May 25, in recognition of Memorial Day. Regular collection is delayed one day for the remainder of the week, with Friday collection occurring on Saturday. 

Curb It!

Curb It! is the residential recycling program in most Central Iowa communities. Each residence is equipped with a green Curb It! cart to set at the curb bi-weekly on the same day as garbage collection. 

NOTE: Des Moines residents have a blue cart. The same rules apply, but Des Moines Public Works manages collection.


Collection Day & Calendar

To determine your collection week, match the color of your recycling cart lid (black or green) with the color of the week on the calendar. To learn what day of the week visit your Community Information page
