Residential & Commercial

All waste, both commercial and residential, generated within the city limits of Adel is accepted at the South Dallas County Landfill.

Waste transported by residents of the communities and rural areas of both Polk and Dallas Counties, including, but not limited to, Ankeny, Clive, Johnston, Grimes, Minburn, Perry (when site is closed), Redfield, Urbandale, Waukee, as well as West Des Moines is also accepted.
Construction material from the above areas that is being hauled by residents or by individual contractors is classified as "self-hauled" waste and is allowed to be accepted at the landfill.

*** PLEASE NOTE:  Waste that is being hauled by commercial haulers (those that haul waste for a fee) is not allowed to be accepted, unless the waste is generated within the city limits of Adel.  All other waste outside Adel's city limits hauled by commercial haulers must be taken to the landfill of the appropriate service areas as defined in the comprehensive plan. ***
Iowa State law restricts the waste stream to the Landfill designated by each City and County.  If not in the South Dallas County Landfill service area as noted above, check the other Landfills below for your service area.
