The East Village and Western Gateway will be getting 42 new recycling bins as part of an expansion of Recycle DSM, a partnership between the city of Des Moines and Operation Des Moines. The Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful Recycling Bin Grant Program donated the bins, and the city also is supporting the expansion. The program launched in October with eight receptacles in the East Village. The Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful program this year will provide 3,522 recycling bins to colleges and universities, along with 996 bins to local governments and nonprofit organizations.
