Solid Waste EMS Participant Information

Solid Waste EMS program is a voluntary alternative to Iowa’s Comprehensive Planning program. For more information can be found on the Iowa’s Solid Waste EMS program webpage.

After applying to the program, and being designated an EMS by the Environmental Protection Commission, program participants are coached in the ten “Elements” of Iowa’s Solid Waste EMS. This web page contains training information and example documents from that training. Along the right side of the page the Electronic Document Retrieval system may be utilized to review EMS participant reports and EMS Audit reports along with other program information.
