Whether you’re running an organization of 50 or a city of 50,000, it’s important that your waste needs are taken care of in a safe, smart, and sustainable way. That’s why Metro Waste Authority is committed to keeping recycling programs not only going, but growing! 

In November 2021, we will be opening the doors to our first Material Recovery Facility (MRF). This new facility in Grimes, IA, will significantly expand our capacity to divert material from the landfill and allow us to serve new businesses and municipalities looking for a reliable partner in recycling processing.
