As of May 1, 2010 the City of Cedar Falls will no longer be allowed to operate a recycling drop-off site at the Wal-Mart Super Center on Brandilynn Blvd.
The elimination of this site is a corporate decision that is being implemented at all Wal-Mart stores nation wide. The decision has nothing to do with the appearance or maintenance of the site. Local management was very pleased with the method in which the site was managed and realized the impact this operation had on bringing in customers.
Recycling will continue at all other locations including:
- The main recycling facility located at 15th and State St.
- Fareway Grocery Store on Magnolia Drive
- UNI – Panther Parkway on the UNI campus between 27th and 31st St.
- The Western Home Communities off of South Main St. on Hyacinth Drive
- Pointe West -1921 W. 18th St.
The main facility is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
All other sites are in operation 24 hours, 7days a week.
The City of Cedar Falls will continue to explore recycling options that will best serve the community and minimize the overall environmental impact.
