Household Hazardous Materials Regional Collection Center Re-Opening Delayed

The Dubuque Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Agency’s (DMASWA) Household Hazardous Materials Regional Collection Center (HHMRCC) will not reopen on April 2 as previously planned, due to required building modifications. The agency is uncertain when the facility will reopen. During the delay, please utilize the materials as they are intended to be used and store them as directed on their containers. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay may cause.

The HHMRCC is a permanent drop-off facility co-located with the DMASWA Landfill. It is designated as a seasonal drop-off location for household hazardous materials, such as oil-based paints, wood stains and finishes, lawn and garden chemicals, household cleaning chemicals, and other items that are potentially harmful to Iowa’s ground and surface waters.

This program is supported through landfill tonnage fees and is a service provided to the residents of Dubuque and Delaware counties at no charge. When the HMMRCC re-opens for the season, collection hours will be 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. For additional information regarding household hazardous material management, visit DMASWA.org or contact the DMASWA Education Coordinator Bev Wagner at (563) 588-7933 or Beverly.wagner@loras.edu. For information concerning the HHMRCC re-opening delay, please contact agency Administrator John Foster at (563) 589-4250 or jfoster@cityofdubuque.org.
