Environmental Management System

The Regional Environmental Improvement Commission participates in Iowa's Solid Waste Environmental Management System Program, which is a voluntary program that focuses on continuous improvement in organics waste management, household hazardous materials collection, water quality improvement, greenhouse gas reduction, recycling services, and environmental education.

Our environmental policy is to be committed to improving solid waste management and environmental stewardship in the service area. Our commitment will be demonstrated through regulatory compliance and continuous improvement that is guided by an Environmental Management System (EMS). REIC's EMS provides a framework for pursuing environmental objectives and targets for its operations, services, and programs. REIC's EMS will be maintained by a Core Team, and progress will be measured and reported annually.
