Garbage (solid waste)
Residents and Commercial Businesses can haul garbage to the landfill. All incoming customers are required to weigh on the scale located at the recycling center. All garbage coming to the landfill must be tarped and the tarp tied down securely to prevent litter on the roadways. All end-gates must be in the upright position. After the load is weighed, customers proceed to the landfill to unload the garbage. After the load is unloaded, customers go back and weigh empty at the recycling center. Cost of disposal of garbage is $41 per ton.

Appliances include washing machines, clothes dryers, microwaves, dehumidifiers, air conditioners, furnaces, refrigerators, and freezers. The Commission has a contract with Quant Auto Salvage who comes and picks up the appliances and de-manufactures them according to Iowa's regulations. After the appliances are de-manufactured, the scrap metal is sold to a salvage yard. Cost for disposal is $10 per appliance.
