The Rural Iowa Hub & Spoke Recycling Project Final Report is now available on the DNR's waste planning and recycling webpage - be sure to click on "Studies and Reports." 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources contracted with SCS Engineers to conduct the study, leading to recommendations for implementing a Hub and Spoke recycling system as a means of increasing rural recycling participation, while maintaining and improving rural recycling efficiencies and economics. 

The study included identifying existing rural recycling services, service providers, and recycling gaps, and providing strategies to fill recycling gaps, including a hub and spoke recycling system.
