Welcome to the SCISWA Home Page

The South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency (SCISWA) is a four-county inter-governmental unit serving Lucas, Marion, Monroe and Poweshiek Counties. The Agency area, which was formed in 1994, consists of 26 towns including Victor in Iowa County. The counties and cities in the Agency area joined forces so they could manage waste in the most effective and cost-efficient way possible and to better meet state and federal regulations.

Asphalt Shingle Recycling Comes to Poweshiek County

The Poweshiek Transfer Station has opened a recycling drop-off for clean asphalt shingles. With the new program, roofing companies and residents can save money and help the environment by separating asphalt shingles from other roofing materials during projects. The recovered asphalt shingles are dropped in a separate storage bunker at the Transfer Station and hauled to a processing facility when a full semi-load has been accumulated.

SCISWA is providing a $20 per ton discount from standard disposal rates for the separated shingles. However, contaminants (including wood, plastic and vinyl, felt, and other garbage) are being handled as waste. If not separated, SCISWA staff will charge the full disposal rate for the mixed load.

Shingles from roofing projects on single family homes (including multi-family dwellings up to a 4-plex) are not required to be tested for asbestos.

For shingles from commercial buildings (businesses and multi-family dwellings with more than 4 units), the contractor must provide certification and test results documenting that the recovered shingles do not contain asbestos

How to Recycle Household Batteries

There is a difference in household batteries. Some should be recycled; some should still go out with the trash. And, frequently you will need to read the label to know which is which.
