Spring Electronics Recycling and Toxic Materials Drop-off Event
 
The Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission and the City of Waterloo will be co-sponsoring the Spring Household Hazardous Materials & Electronics Recycling Drop-off Event on Saturday, April 14th. Black Hawk County residents are invited to get rid of approved items from their homes and garages (some fees may apply).
 
The drop-off event will be held from 9 AM - 2 PM at the Waterloo Waste Water Treatment Plant (3505 Easton Avenue). On the day of the event, follow the signs from the corner of Highway 218 and Mitchell Avenue to the drop-off site. Volunteers will unload your items for you.
 
Black Hawk County households can get rid of old chemicals, propane tanks, fluorescent light bulbs (compact and tube), mercury thermometers, car batteries, and many more household toxins.
 
Electronics will also be recycled at this event. Each vehicle/household may bring two Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) containing devices for free (older TV's and computer monitors with the bump in the back). Additional CRTs are $5 each (with no limit). Please bring exact cash only. Many other electronic and electrical items (flat screen TVs/monitors, vacuums, holiday lights, game systems, etc.) will be recycled at no cost.
