Environmental, Health & Safety Management System

Waste Commission of Scott County 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: organics management, household hazardous materials collection, 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. At our Electronics Recovery Center, we also follow several standards that are widely recognized and utilized by industry: ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.

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 environment, and health & safety. It also includes details of progress that the Commission has made in improving its environmental and health & safety performance.
