Hazardous Waste Drop-Off for Waukee and West Des Moines
The Metro Waste Authority will visit Waukee for household hazardous waste drop-offs this weekend.
Dropping-off waste material here will enable proper disposal methods that aren’t harmful to families, or the environment.
Both Waukee and West Des Moines residents can bring lead and oil-based paints, insecticides, poisons and solvents, lawn products, CFLs, and cleaners.
Latex paint and electronic waste is not accepted. Latex paint can be disposed of by mixing with cat litter or saw dust and drying it out. Then, it can be thrown out like regular trash.
The clean-up will take place from 8:00 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, May 14 at the Middle School located on 905 Warrior Lane in Waukee.
A list of accepted and unaccepted items is available.
