Get your lawn or garden in shape this spring with free compost from the Solid Waste Agency! Linn County residents may take one ton of compost for no charge each time they visit the Agency’s compost/yard waste location, 2250 A Street SW, Cedar Rapids, near Czech Village.

If you arrive in a pickup truck or with a trailer, Agency staff will load the compost for you. If you do not need that much, bring along buckets or totes and a shovel and take however much you need. The location is open Monday – Friday 8am – 4pm, and, starting April 01, 2019, Saturday 8am – 12pm. Stop at the scale house when you first arrive and you will be directed where to go.

Need more than one ton at a time? Residents may purchase each additional ton for $24.00. Businesses and out-of-county residents may also purchase nutrient-rich compost for $24.00 per ton.
