Curbside recycling collection
It's easy to recycle! Many Linn County communities offer curbside pickup of recyclable materials. To see how your community handles recycling, or if you have a problem or question about your curbside pickup, please contact your city official or waste hauler. Here's a list of Linn County communities and their contact information.
Sorry, we don't pick up recyclables, but you can drop off paper, plastic, cardboard and glass at the Agency's two recycling drop-off locations
The Solid Waste Agency doesn't pick up recyclables. You can drop off the same items and more at our two drop-off locations. If you're wondering whether an item can be recycled, either curbside or by the Cedar Rapids/Linn County Solid Waste Agency, check our Recycling Guide. More information about recycling options can be found in the Home & Business Recycling Companion.
Materials taken to the Solid Waste Agency are processed for recycling and sent to other facilities that recover and reuse the materials they contain.
Protecting the environment is important to us. That's why we strive to divert as much waste as possible from our landfill and to recover as much reusable material as we can.
