Help Keep West Des Moines Beautiful!

Adopt A Street

Litter along community streets is an eyesore and eventually becomes pollutants in our streams and lakes.  Removing it helps keep public areas clean and attractive, protects our waterways and builds civic pride.

You Can Now Adopt A Street In West Des Moines!

Are you tired of seeing trash along a street?  Are you ready to do something about it? Now you or your local group can adopt one of West Des Moines' streets and help make a difference in the community!

The West Des Moines Public Services Department will provide the resources (trash bags, planning help, etc.) to help your group adopt a West Des Moines street. After your group has officially adopted a street a sign will be placed along the street to recognize your sponsoring group and your much appreciated efforts.
