2nd Saturdays

Dispose of household hazardous waste the 2nd Saturday of the month, March-November, from 8 AM-Noon in Grimes.

Common household items like bleach, rechargeable batteries, oil-based paints, lawn chemicals such as fertilizers or weed killer, old motor oil or gasoline, and energy efficient lightbulbs (CFL) are all accepted at this drop-off. View accepted household hazardous waste items here.

Conveniently located at our Metro Northwest Transfer Station, 4105 SE Beisser Drive in Grimes, just a half-mile west of IA-Hwy 141. Head down Beisser Drive until you come up on our big lighted sign and take a left. Then, hang another quick left through the gate and red signs will guide you the rest of the way!

During the 2nd Saturday events, recycling containers are available for cardboard, glass, and mixed recycling for residents to use for free. View a list of accepted recyclables here.
