Meet Our Team

Waste Trac Education Team logoSince 1995, the Black Hawk County Solid Waste Management Commission and the Black Hawk County Conservation Board have partnered to provide free waste reduction outreach through the Waste Trac Education Team. This two-person team acts as the voice for the Commission through:

  • Answering the telephone helpline (319-266-TRAC)
  • Managing this website
  • Publishing the Commission's Newsletter
  • Providing free educational programs and tours to youth, adults, and the general public in Black Hawk County
  • Organizing and promoting Commission sponsored drop-off events for Black Hawk County residents to properly dispose of household toxins and recycle home electronics
  • Recruiting volunteers to assist during the Commission's spring and fall drop-off events
  • Coordinating the Commission's Portable Event Recycling Equipment Loan Program
  • Connecting the public with recycling and waste related resources and helping schools go "green"!

Through a partnership with the City of Cedar Falls, the team's Education Center is located at 1500 Bluff Street (behind the Cedar Falls Transfer Station and Recycling Center).
