Linn County residents may schedule appointments and prepay for the accepted materials listed above. Appointments are available 7:00am – 3:00pm, Monday – Friday and can be scheduled by calling 319-377-5290, press option #4. Garbage and the other drop-off services are available only at 1954 County Home Road, Marion.
The appointment and prepay system allow residents to have a no-contact visit at the Solid Waste Agency. Having a scheduled time keeps each area of the Agency: the scale house, the residential garbage dumpsters, glass drop-off container, the landfill, and Resource Recovery building from being overcrowded and putting residents in a position where they cannot safely practice social distancing. For that reason, the Agency is not accepting household recyclables, such as paper products, plastic products, aluminum and tin cans, and cardboard at this time. Residents are encouraged to use their curbside services for those items, if they have that option. If not, those items can be thrown away.
