Storm Cleanup Maps

For non-derecho yard waste disposal, please visit Des Moines Public Works.

This webpage was used to communicate updates about City of Des Moines cleanup efforts following the August 2020 Derecho that left many residents without power and an overwhelming amount of downed trees, branches, and other storm debris all across the city.

In the event of another massive storm that prompts an extended cleanup effort, this webpage will be updated with progress maps, collection guidelines and other necessary information.
