Yard Waste Disposal Moves to Compost Site at MPE

The last day to deliver yard waste to the Metro Compost Center (1601 Harriet Street, Des Moines) is January 31, 2017. Beginning February 1, 2017, the facility will no longer accept yard waste and it must be directed to the Compost Site at Metro Park East Landfill (12181 NE University, Mitchellville).

On July 20, the Metro Waste Authority Board of Directors voted to move composting operations from the existing Metro Compost Center in Des Moines to Metro Park East in Mitchellville, in order to increase operational efficiencies. 

The new Compost Site is located within Metro Park East Landfill, where yard waste remains separate from garbage and is made into compost. Upon arrival, scale house staff will direct drivers where to unload yard waste.
