An Environmentally Sound Landfill.

Not everyone realizes how much planning can and should go into a landfill. At DMASWA, we make sure ours reflects the overall commitment we have for the environment. Specifically, we’re working hard to reduce greenhouse gases, protect groundwater and facilitate well-planned, community-driven conservation alternatives. We believe that operating a good landfill is an important part of our commitment to the Dubuque community. And we’ll continue to look for ways to make it as environmentally sound as possible.
