Regional Collection Centers (RCCs) are permanent collection facilities designed to assist households and conditionally exempt small quantity generator businesses with proper management and disposal of hazardous waste, provide a materials exchange (Swap Shop) for usable products, and work to educate Iowans in proper purchasing, use, storage and disposal of household hazardous materials.
Currently, 27 main RCCs and 43 satellite facilities serve 96 counties in Iowa which provide a variety of programs and services, including daily access to a hazardous material drop-off site.
If your county does not have an RCC, talk to your local county, city officials, board of Supervisors, or solid waste agency about establishing one in your area.
DNR personnel are available to present to your group or organization on both Household Hazardous Materials and establishing a Regional Collection Center. To schedule a presentation, contact Kathleen Hennings at Kathleen.email@example.com or call 515-725-8359.
