Spring 2000 Toxic Cleanup Days

Several Toxic Cleanup Days will be held this spring to give Iowa residents an opportunity to properly dispose of waste materials that are hazardous or prohibited during normal trash collections. Toxic Cleanup Days are jointly sponsored and funded by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and local agencies in the counties where the events are being held. The DNR is currently phasing out Toxic Cleanup Days in most areas in the state in favor of regional collection centers. These centers give residents increased opportunities to dispose of hazardous materials. An upcoming Integrated Crop Management newsletter will list these regional collection centers.
