Regional Collection Centers for hazardous waste

Regional Collection Centers give Iowans opportunities to dispose of hazardous wastes that they may have at their homes or small businesses. These products may include paints, oil, batteries, solvents, cleaners, pesticides, and other materials that might harm humans, animals, and the environment. The Regional Centers are permanent sites for collection of products that are considered hazardous. These centers give residents increased opportunities to dispose of hazardous wastes because they are available year-round and have set business hours. Also, most Regional Collection Centers have mobile units that travel to participating towns in their service area to collect hazardous waste.

Presently, 58 counties are served by Regional Collection Centers (see map, below). However, residents and small business generators of hazardous waste may participate in a nearby program for a small fee. Residents in the Regional Collection Center service area can dispose of their hazardous waste at no charge. Persons interested in this program need to make an appointment with one of the centers and send a list of prospective items for disposal. Upon approval, the resident or small business generator can then bring the items to the center at the scheduled time.

For more information on Regional Collection Centers, please call the location nearest you (see below) or call the Waste Management Assistance Division of the Department of Natural Resources at 515-281-4367.
