Waste Commission of Scott County is a 28E, inter-governmental agency that was established in 1972 and reorganized in 1990. Our members include 17 communities and Scott County. The Commission, headquartered in Buffalo, Iowa, has planned, sited, built and operates:
Scott Area Landfill
, a synthetically lined Subtitle D landfill that includes leachate collection, recirculation and methane recovery.
Scott Area Recycling Center
, which serves as the sorting and processing facility for all residential recyclables collected in Scott County.
Household Hazardous Material Facilities
, which serve residents in both Scott County, Iowa and Rock Island County, Illinois on an appointment basis. It also serves businesses that generate a limited amount of hazardous material.
Electronic Demanufacturing Facility
, the first public facility of its kind in Iowa, demanufactures, processes and recycles electronic waste (e-waste)
such as computers and televisions from residents and businesses in eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
iLivehere: myhome ourcommunity®
is an environmental outreach program that provides public education to teach students, residents and businesses in the greater Quad-City area about solid waste and recycling-related issues.
These programs are solely supported by tipping fees, the fees charged for materials brought to our facilities.
