Updated Nov. 2, 2020
Linn County residents living in unincorporated Linn County should place their organic debris from the August 10 derecho in the right-of-way (ROW) by November 9, 2020 to guarantee removal by Linn County’s debris removal contractor. Due to the widespread area of unincorporated Linn County, debris removal may occur in the days following the deadline; however, having organic storm debris to the ROW by November 9 will guarantee removal.
While not required, rural residents are encouraged to call Linn County Engineering at 319-892-6400 or email email@example.com when their debris is placed in the ROW to assist in identifying areas ready for pickup.
Alternative Debris Options
As alternative disposal options, Linn County has extended the burn permit deferment in unincorporated Linn County through December 31, 2020. In addition, the County's four self-haul sites remain open for rural residents to dispose of their organic storm debris. The four sites are in addition to the two Solid Waste Agency locations.
