Walk-In SERVICE

We currently have locations in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Marion. To make your recycling easier we accommodate large and small volume returns and offer personal service. To be most efficient we suggest using our box/liner system or our sorting area. This reduces the time it takes to count individual items. There is no limit on quantities, however, returns exceeding $100.00 will be invoiced and a check will be mailed.

Size Matters – when containers are sorted by size and material it’s easy to determine how many
containers are in a bag. If containers are not properly sorted, you may receive the price of the
largest container in the bag (i.e. 24oz bottles, properly sorted is $7.20 in redemption value. When
mixed with 2 liters, you will only receive the redemption value of the 2 liters, which is only $2.00.)

The following items are available at both locations
  • Can boxes to hold a can liner at $6.00 plus tax.
  • Can box lids at $2.00 plus tax.
  • Liner deposit at $ .50 each. (replaced when redeemed)

Please review the Walk-In Guidelines for your selected location for item quantities, redemption value, and information. We have the right to refuse returns that do not follow the guidelines.

Face masks recommended for our customers in Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha, and Marion.  Face masks are required for our Iowa City customers.

Can Shed can help your group make money

Scouts, schools, churches, and other organizations have had great success hosting a can drive as a fundraising event. There is no pressure on friends and family to purchase anything they are simply donating items they have collected.

There are a few different options for organizing a can drive. You can set up a drive on a given date using our trailer with drop off and pick up service, collect them and bring in to customer service or if you have collected a large amount, you can arrange for pick-up
of the containers.
