Solid Waste Permitting

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) administers the state’s solid waste program which includes regulation of solid waste handling and disposal facilities, special waste disposal authorizations, beneficial reuse and product stewardship. Proper management of solid waste protects Iowa’s land, water and air resources.

Sign In is only required for Department staff and regulated facilities that submit reports online (available for semi-annual RCC reports and quarterly tonnage fee reports). All other users may visit the "Reports" menu to view publicly available reports.

The solid waste application tracks amendments, renewals, and report submittals for permitted solid waste facilities and licensed household hazardous waste regional collection centers. The application also contains basic facility information such as permit/license numbers, facility contacts, project locations and expiration dates. All incoming and outgoing documents are converted to an electronic format and are available for public viewing using the Electronic Document Retrieval report.
