Buena Vista County
Recycle Center

In 1989, the state of Iowa passed the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act, making it a requirement for every city and county in Iowa to establish a recycling program in order to reduce the amount of waste being landfilled. Because of this, the Buena Vista County/Harold Rowley Recycle Center was opened in 1990 to process recyclables for the residents and businesses of Buena Vista County.

All loads are required to be covered or secured in such a manner that prevents littering of public roadways.  Loads arriving at the Recycle Center that are not secured or covered (tarped) will be subject to an additional fee of $10 and provided a tarp for your next visit.  Covers are not limited to tarps but can be anything that completely covers the load and is secured.  A copy of the policy is here: Covered Load Policy
