Winter hours will go into effect on Monday, December 02, 2019 at both Solid Waste Agency locations.
The landfill and Resource Recovery building, 1954 County Home Road, Marion, will be open:
Monday – Friday, 7:00am – 4:00pm
Saturday, 8:00am – 12:00pm
The compost and yard waste location, 2250 A Street SW, Cedar Rapids, will be open:
Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm
The Agency is enacting winter hours at both locations because the amount of customers at both sites decreases significantly over the course of winter. Closing early at the landfill will improve safety efforts, as it will allow staff to cover daily fill operations under natural light before the early nightfall sets in. It will also cut back on fuel usage and wear and tear on the heavy equipment used six days a week at the landfill.
Expanded Saturday hours will take place in spring 2020.
