Get your lawn or garden in shape with free compost from the Solid Waste Agency! Linn County residents may take screened 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, Saturday 8am – 12pm. Stop at the scale house when you first arrive and you will be directed where to go.
Businesses and out-of-county residents may purchase nutrient-rich compost for $24.00 per ton.
Both residents and businesses may take unscreened compost for no charge, no limit on quantity, while supplies last. Unscreened compost may have chunks of organics that have not completely broken down during the compost "cooking" process.
