Metro Waste Authority is adding residential trash drop-off to the services offered at Metro Northwest Transfer Station in Grimes.
Beginning Saturdays in May, residents can bring typical household garbage, and large items, such as mattresses or furniture, to the Northwest Drop-off. Think of stuff that would usually require a large item or extra trash sticker at the curb, it can be brought to the drop-off instead for a fee. With spring clean-up being postponed due to COVID-19, this provides a convenient location to dispose of trash as people are cleaning out.
In addition to garbage drop-off, the northwest location also offers compost for purchase by the bag and free recycling drop-off, including cardboard. To ensure safety, hazardous waste will not be accepted at this time. In addition, appliances, tires, yard waste, and construction and demolition materials are not accepted and must be taken to the landfill.
Metro Northwest Transfer Station in Grimes is located at 4105 SE Beisser Drive, just a half-mile west of IA-Hwy 141.
