Dispose of them at hazardous waste drop-offs
Hazardous materials are used in day-to-day life without even giving it a second thought. When you care for your home, you often use hazardous products. Metro Waste Authority partners with western suburbs to help you recycle and dispose of these materials the safe and smart way. This year, you can recycle and dispose of these products at any of our west side drop-off events from 8 a.m. to noon:
May 12, Waukee Middle School, 905 Warrior Lane
June 30, Valley Stadium in West Des Moines, 4440 Mills Civic Parkway
Oct. 27, Clive Aquatics Center, 1801 N.W. 114th St.
Latex paint, electronic waste and pharmaceuticals are NOT accepted at these events. You can find a complete list of accepted and not accepted items and other drop off dates scheduled in nearby suburbs on our website.
The Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off is open year-round to the public and accepts up to 75 pounds of hazardous waste from residents per visit for free (with some exclusions). A $1/pound is assessed above 75 pounds.
