Meeting Schedule

The South Dallas County Landfill Agency meets on the second Thursday of the month.

Location:     2000 Main St, Adel, Iowa
Time:          Thursday at 3:30 PM

South Dallas County Landfill Recycling Stickers Project    Adel Residents we need your help!  Our recycling bins are being filled with non-recyclables!  Ankeny Sanitation is unable to take it to a recycling center and it goes to the landfill!  Ankeny Sanitation nor the South Dallas County Landfill want this to happen. They are teaming up with the Adel Scouts. The Scouts will be applying stickers on the yellow lids of your bin, so you see what DOES and DOESN’T go.
   The Scouts began this project June 10. They need you to please leave your recycling bin out front an extra day, so the recycling sticker can be affixed on the yellow lid.  Please clean off the lid so the sticker will adhere properly. Do not worry if you do not get a sticker right away.  This project will take many weeks to complete, there are over 2,000 stickers that will need to be applied.
    Bins must be out front because the Scouts can only affix a sticker to a bin located there.  This is a fundraiser for them so the more they affix, the more they earn for Scout activities. Please help us out!!  We all know that recycling is good for the environment.  The stickers will be an in-front-of-you-reminder of what to put in the yellow bins. Please put in the bins those items that are recyclable! We appreciate your help with this project.
