*Most of our recycling services are free to Linn County residents. We use fees collected from landfilling to subsidize these programs.  When we do charge a fee, it is to help cover the cost of providing our programs and services.

**Only small residential loads with grass clippings, leaves & branches less than 4" thick are accepted at County Home Road. Commercial loads, all trailer loads, and residential loads of any size accepted at A Street SW facility.
