Fall 2019 No Charge Yard Waste Days


The fall No Charge Yard Waste Days will be held as follows, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at GreenRU (formerly Chamness Technology), at 400 Freel Drive in east Ames.  Residents may dispose of yard waste at no charge during these events.  Commercial customers will not receive free service these days, but may still pay to use the site.

Those participating in No Charge Yard Waste Days are asked to enter the site from Dayton Road west onto SE 5th Street, north on Freel Drive to the site, and exit to the north on Freel Drive to Lincoln Way. Participants should follow GreenRU's rules for proper yard waste disposal. For additional information or questions, call GreenRU at 515-450-0450 and leave a message.

Yard waste is not accepted at the Resource Recovery Plant (RRP).  

Voided Brush disposal voucher including dates, times, and location.



Sometimes that brush day is just not going to work out for you, or the weather does not cooperate; so we're trying out a voucher system!  You will have 3 alternate dates you can take your brush, leaves, grass clippings, and garden waste to the yard waste site for no charge.  You can get your voucher prior to Friday, November 8, at the Resource Recovery Plant office!
