New Garbage Service Provider
The City of Grimes is dedicated to enhancing services provided to residents. Beginning in July, our garbage hauler switched to ASI, out of Ankeny. To provide this service, the city is closely working with Metro Waste Authority.
By working with Metro Waste Authority, residents will be able to call one place for assistance with trash, recycling, and yard waste.
If you have extra bags or boxes of trash, a $1 extra trash sticker will be needed for disposal. Most large household items require a $5 sticker, while appliances require seven $5 stickers. Residents simply need to place the extra trash or large item, with the appropriate stickers, at the curb on their regular collection day. Calling ahead is only required for disposal of TVs larger than 19” or an appliance.
Stickers are sold at city hall. Stickers can also be purchased on the Metro Waste Authority website, then will be mailed to your home.
