Business pallets and packaging

If your business receives shipments of large items, or large quantities of smaller items, chances are good they'll be delivered on a pallet or in some other type of packaging material. Here's how you can recycle that material.
  • Many bulky items can be recycled, including metal drums (open top or bottom cut out, free of concrete, fluids, plastic and wood).
  • Cardboard boxes can be recycled at the Cedar Rapids/Linn County Solid Waste Agency's Resource Recovery building.
  • Pallets and other waste wood products are garbage items and need to be landfilled. Regular garbage fees apply.
