The Agency, in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, has established the HHM facility to provide residents and Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs) with a local disposal of Household Hazardous Materials.
The service is FREE (excluding latex paint) for all households within the Agency’s service area. However, there is a charge for businesses. You must be a resident or categorized as a Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG) in the Commission’s service area to utilize this facility. User fees may be assessed for VSQG’s within the service area. Call to determine if your business would be categorized as a VSQG.
Hours are Monday thru Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. by appointment.
