Residential Electronics Recycling & Household Toxins Drop-off

The Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission will be partnering with the City of Cedar Falls to sponsor an electronics recycling and household hazardous materials drop-off event. 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, September 23rd from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM at the Cedar Falls Public Works Complex (2200 Technology Parkway). Follow the signs from the corner of Hudson Road and Technology Parkway to the drop-off site.

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.

Each vehicle/household can recycle two Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) containing computer monitors/televisions for free (including console TVs and TVs/monitors with the big bump in the back). Additional CRTs are $5 each. Flat screen TVs/monitors, computer accessories, game systems, vacuums, VCR/DVD players, radios, humidifiers, holiday lights, and much more will be recycled at no cost.
