Ever conscious of protecting the environment, the South Dallas County Landfill has worked diligently to comply with the rules and regulations set forth by the EPA and Iowa DNR. The recently revised DNR requirements for both groundwater and air quality standards have had a significant financial impact on the facility and include additional requirements for cell construction and monitoring methods that will ensure the protection of groundwater and air quality.
As a member of the MWA Regional Collection Center for Household Hazardous Waste, the SDCLA, with the cooperation of the City of Adel, sponsors a collection event in April of each year at the Adel City Park. Citizens can bring their unused, unwanted household chemicals for proper disposal during the event. Other times of the year, citizens may take their items directly to the facility at Bondurant. Please call 1-888-603-2739 for hours of operation and specific regulations.
