Welcome!

Kiowa County was created on April 11, 1889, taking its name for the Kiowa Indians. The Missouri Pacific Railroad crossed the Kansas border in 1887 when the area was still part of a larger Bent County. The railroad platted towns approximately every seven miles. Incorporated towns are Sheridan Lake, Eads and Haswell. Unincorporated towns are Towner, Brandon, Chivington and Arlington. Kiowa County is dedicated to providing economic, social, health and other services to its citizens. 

Kiowa County Clerk's Office

Kiowa County Recycling Program

Kiowa County's recycling program is off to a terrific start! Right now we are able to collect and bale cardboard, plastics (#1, #2 and #5), aluminum and baling twine at the Recycling Center located at the old County Road and Bridge shop in Sheridan Lake. 

We have purchased 6 dumpsters - Orange with Black lids - that will be located at -- Towner, Sheridan Lake, Brandon, Chivington, Haswell and Arlington. These will be "FOR CARDBOARD ONLY". There are also brown pickup bed trailers with cages (Eads & Haswell) and chemical shuttles (all other locations) for "PLASTIC, ALUMINUM AND BALER TWINE". 

For a complete run down of what is accepted and where these dumpsters are located, please click here

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Right now we work in the recycling center from noon to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every other Thursday.  We would appreciate volunteer help -- collecting plastic -- or cardboard; sorting of plastic; helping load cardboard in the baler; clean up after baling; giving ideas to help our program, unloading cardboard and plastic when it arrives.

We can also take aluminum and used baler twine.

In 2020 we baled and sold 68,000 pounds of cardboard and have already made a noticeable difference at the landfill. A bale of cardboard (60" x 48" x 30") will save at least 4.5 cubic yards of space in the landfill. A bale of plastic is reported to save as much as 15 or more cubic yards of space.

We would appreciate any help you can give the recycling effort. If you want to volunteer to help in any way, call the Commissioner's Office at (719) 438-5810!
