2nd Saturdays

We will be open on Saturday, November 11, for the last day to dispose of household hazardous waste in Grimes this year! On the 2nd Saturday of the month, March-November, from 8 AM-Noon in Grimes, residents can drop-off household hazardous waste (a fee may apply).

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.

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.

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!
