Effective March 5th (Black Hawk Co. Landfill Closed Today)


Black Hawk Waste is taking over the City Contract for Oelwein effective April 1st, 2018. HOWEVER, we are going to be integrating our CURRENT customers into the new schedule effective March 5th to help with a transition period.

If you are a current customer, please see the map attached to this post for your NEW PICK UP DAY! This day will be for your trash AND RECYCLING (if you have our recycling service).

If you do NOT have our service currently, these new days will NOT go into effect for you until April 1st, 2018.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 319-232-4150 or Sales@BlackHawkWaste.com.

We thank you for your patience during this significant transition.

Residential Pick Up – Will be continued as normal

Commercial Pick Up – Priority Stops Only (restaurants, factories, etc), business that can be shut down by EPA.
