Des Moines, IA's Holiday Waste Collection Schedule
Arwood Waste wants to celebrate all the holidays with you too. This is why we created a Holiday Pick-up schedule so that you can make arrangements and placement of your waste material while we spend time with our families. Businesses that currently receive City of Des Moines, IA garbage collection may have different schedules and procedures than residential customers since business garbage is normally collected separately from residential garbage.
Ask us how we can save you time and money.

Due to the one day postponement, the collection of containers is resumed as follows, if the holiday is on a Monday, then the Monday collection will occur on Tuesday, Tuesday collection will occur on Wednesday, and so on and so forth. If the holiday is on a Thursday, then the Thursday collection will occur on Friday and Friday collection will occur on Saturday for that week only. On all other holidays, normal collection of containers will occur. If a holiday falls on the weekend, the schedule will be running on a normal schedule unless otherwise specified.
