Why recycle?

Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment.

Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste.



Members of the West Central Iowa Solid Waste Management Association are provided many integrated solid waste services at locations throughout the planning area. Services provided include metal recycling, wood recycling, solid waste disposal, paper recycling, and more.
