Dung beetle on display at Linn County Solid Waste Agency

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A giant dung beetle is on display in Cedar Rapids. The sculpture of nature's best recycler is at the Cedar Rapids - Linn County Solid Waste Agency just north of Marion.

It weighs in around 1,680 pounds and is made entirely out of materials that were headed to the landfill.

German artist Mo Flow-den designed the beetle and built it with the help of Metro High School students in just over a month with donated leftover materials for the Eco-Arts Fest in Cedar Rapids earlier this year.

The beetle will be on display for several months at the Solid Waste Agency, before moving on to other groups that were involved with the Eco-Arts Fest.
