ALL Black Hawk County residents are welcome to bring approved materials. This event will be held on Saturday, April 2nd from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM at the Waterloo Waste Water Treatment Plant located at 3505 Easton Avenue in Waterloo. The Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission will be accepting toxic materials from county residents' homes at the free drop-off site. Items such as lawn chemicals, old cleaners, rechargeable batteries, fluorescent light bulbs (compact and tube), aerosol cans, propane tanks and much more will be accepted for safe disposal.
