Business & Industry Services

Waste Commission of Scott County has several programs and resources to assist business and industry in the Quad City area.

Electronic Waste
The Commission's Electronic Demanufacturing Facility recycles e-waste such as computers, monitors, copy machines and more and shreds hard drives for data security.

Hazardous Material
The Commission's Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator program helps businesses properly dispose of hazardous materials.

The Commission and the Scott County Health Department offer five drop-off recycling locations throughout Scott County for the paper products, cardboard and recyclable containers small businesses may generate. The Commission does not provide collection services, but we can refer you to hauling companies and provide additional resources for implementing a recycling program.

The Commission continually updates its list of resources to help businesses go green. From starting a recycling program to scheduling a waste audit to discovering ways employees can get involved in environmental activities in the community, we've got you covered.

Special Waste
The Commission accepts special waste from businesses, which requires additional or specific handling for proper disposal. This includes hazardous waste, potentially infectious medical waste, industrial process waste and pollution control waste.


Waste Commission of Scott County has made public education a priority.

We provide tours of all Commission facilities, including the Scott Area Landfill, Scott Area Recycling Center, Electronic Demanufacturing Facility and Household Hazardous Material Facilities free of charge. Click here to request a tour.

Grant Program
The Commission recently instituted a grant program for Educational Institutions, Member Communities and Local Non-Profits. We accept applications on an ongoing basis and fund projects, programs, events, curriculum, etc. related to solid waste and the environment. Funding derives from user fees.

Educational Resources
In addition to providing tours and funding for Educational Institutions, the Commission also houses an Environmental Education Library full of resources for further learning on topics related to solid waste and our environment. We are always adding to our library. If you have found a resource helpful that we do not currently have in our library, let us know and we will try to add it per your suggestion.

Waste Commission launched iLivehere on Earth Day, 2008 as our environmental outreach program. We created it to empower you with information, activities and resources for becoming a better steward of our environment. Through our iLivehere program, we provide cleanup supplies, such as bags, gloves, litter tongs and safety vests free of charge to local groups organizing cleanups. Groups that would like to care for an area on an ongoing basis are encouraged to participate in our MAKE it YOURS program.

Event Recycling
The Commission also provides event recycling containers free of charge through our iLivehere program. Think of all the bottles and cans that are generated from a festival or large event! Many of those are thrown in garbage cans and taken to a landfill if no recycling bins are available. You can Recycle at Your Next Event.
