Why we close for high winds

Depending upon the direction and speed, windy conditions can provide a challenge for the control of litter in and around the Iowa City Landfill. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources requires that we comply with litter control standards in order to maintain our landfill permit. Closing the landfill allows us to contain, control and pick wind-blown litter during a wind event.
