2nd Saturdays

Stop by our residential drop-off on the 2nd Saturday of the month, March-November, from 8 AM-Noon. The drop-off is conveniently located at our Metro Northwest Transfer Station at 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 monument sign, and take a left. Then, you’ll want to hang another quick left through our gate, right behind the sign!

We will be open the 2nd Saturday of March, from 8 AM-Noon, with the following services available:
