The State of Iowa uses solid waste planning areas as a strategy to proactively manage solid wastes generated within Iowa. Planning areas consist of a grouping of cities and counties formed around the use of a municipal solid waste landfill. The Boone County Landfill and its service area are partners with the City of Ames Resource Recovery System Together, these two service areas form the Central Iowa Waste Management Planning Area.
The planning area diverts approximately 55% of its waste away from landfill disposal as calculated by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Our planning area is just one of three that have met the State of Iowa goal of 50% landfill diversion.
