What do you do with items like bleach, antifreeze, or bug spray when it’s time to get rid of them? These hazardous items are not your regular trash, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to dispose of them in a safe, smart way!

A variety of household hazardous waste can be dropped off by appointment at our Metro Northwest Transfer Station in Grimes.

We’re currently offering a range of expanded hours for hazardous waste drop-off at this location. The current hours, listed below, may shift as we try to find the right balance providing a safe, smart, and accessible disposal option for residents.
