Regional Collection Centers give Iowans opportunities to dispose of hazardous wastes that they may have at their homes or small businesses. These products may include paints, oil, batteries, solvents, cleaners, pesticides, and other materials that might harm humans, animals, and the environment. The Regional Centers are permanent sites for collection of products that are considered hazardous. These centers give residents increased opportunities to dispose of hazardous wastes because they are available year-round and have set business hours. Also, most Regional Collection Centers have mobile units that travel to participating towns in their service area to collect hazardous waste.
