Recycling and Repurposing in Des Moines, IA


 
At D.A.V. Thrift Store in Des Moines, we believe it is important to recycle our waste and unsold products. We recycle many things that are donated that we cannot use and are able to use the proceeds to benefit local veterans and the community, while helping the environment.
D.A.V. Thrift Store recycles many items, including:
 
  • Clothing that is too worn to resell
  • Hats that aren't in a saleable condition
  • Belts and purses that are no longer usable
 
  • Cardboard (we get lots of donations in boxes)
  • Shoes that are past their prime
  • Scrap metal and appliances
 
 
Retail - Veterans in Des Moines, IA
 
 
We would like to recycle glass and plastic, but currently we have found no economic way of separating all the different types of glass and plastic we receive and cannot use. If anyone has any ideas I am open to them about recycling.
While we do actively recycle, we do not solicit the donation of goods that are not in a re-salable condition. Please call the store's number, listed above, and ask for Allen.
