Environmental, Health and Safety Management System

Waste Commission of Scott County (Commission) established its Environmental Management System (EMS) in 2008 as part of a statewide program that empowers solid waste agencies to demonstrate compliance and continuous improvement in several areas: yard waste and household hazardous materials management, water quality improvement, greenhouse gas reduction, recycling services and environmental education.

Since 2008, the Commission has built upon this foundation set forth by the state. It now conforms not only to the Iowa EMS standard, but also to several standards that are widely recognized and utilized by industry, including ISO 14000 and OHSAS 18001. In addition, at its Electronic Demanufacturing Facility, the Commission adheres to the R2 (Responsible Recycling) standard.

Each year the Commission sends a report about its EMS to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The report includes information about how its operations affect the envirionment, and health & safety. It also includes details of progress that the Commission has made in improving its environmental and health & safety performance. Find the 2013 Annual Report here.
