Environmental Management System

The landfill received grant funding through the Iowa Department of Natural Resources' Environmental Mangement System program to install LED lighting through the landfill site and buildings. This will reduce the landfill's greenhouse emissions from daily operations and energy costs.

Please check the website for updates regarding operations and services before visiting the landfill. All important information will be provided in the Notifications, News, & Events section. Courtesy calls will be made to haulers. Residents should check the website or call.
