Spring 2020 No Charge Yard Waste Day - ROUND 2!


The spring No Charge Yard Waste Day will be held Saturday, June 27, 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 (including brush) at no charge during this event.  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).
