The Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission will be partnering with the City of Waterloo to sponsor an electronics recycling and household hazardous materials drop-off event. Approximately 60 volunteers (age 18+) are needed to help unload items, direct traffic, survey participants, and make this event run efficiently. Groups and individuals interested in volunteering should contact Tammy Turner at 266-TRAC (8722) or by email at tturner@co.black-hawk.ia.us. Volunteer details can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/1246127468807026/.
ALL Black Hawk County residents are welcome to bring approved items from their homes and garages (fees may apply). The drop-off will be held on Saturday, April 8th from 9 AM-2 PM at the Waterloo Waste Water Treatment Plant (3505 Easton Avenue). Follow the signs from the corner of Highway 218 and Mitchell Avenue to the drop-off site.
