Material Search
  • Established in 1990 by the Iowa State Legislature to divert waste materials from the state’s sanitary landfills, the Iowa Waste Exchange (IWE) has a proven record of success.
  • The IWE is one of the nation’s premier materials exchange programs.
  • This no-cost, non-regulatory, confidential service matches institutions that produce byproducts and waste with other groups interested in using or recycling those materials.
  • The program assists clients in saving disposal and raw material costs while subsequently enhancing our natural resources through reducing, reusing, recycling and renewing materials.
