Post Date:04/04/2017 2:27 PM
Do you have dozens and dozens of plastic bags stashed around your house that you always forget to take back to the store? If so, you're in luck! Metro Waste Authority presents the Earth Month Plastic Bag Swap!

During the month of April, simply bring a bagful of plastic bags to City Hall, place them in the designated Earth Month Plastic Bag Swap container and receive a Metro Waste Authority reusable tote bag for FREE (one bag per household while supplies last). Our bag swap container is located in the Parks and Recreation Office, Suite 1B (first floor), City Hall, 4200 Mills Civic Parkway.

In addition, you can help West Des Moines win a beautiful park bench from Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls, made from durable 100% recycled plastic. Communities across the Metro are participating, and the bench will be awarded to the city that collects the most plastic bags (all bags are recycled locally) during the month of April.

Do your part to stop plastic bags from littering our neighborhoods and waterways, get yourself a nifty reusable bag and help West Des Moines win!
