Compost & Yard Waste

What To Expect

Yard waste and food waste is accepted at our Cedar Rapids location.

Please Note: Garbage & recycling items are not accepted at this location. However, small residential loads of yard waste may also be dropped off at 1954 County Home Road, Marion, Iowa.

The Solid Waste Agency compost location can no longer accept large loads of trees, tree debris, and stumps/root balls. This applies to large loads of trees brought in by semi-trailers, side dump trailers, dump trucks, and other large scale equipment used in land clearing work. The Agency does not have enough space for these types of loads and cannot work them into windrows for composting.
