Solid Waste & Recycling Collection Advisory
Solid Waste & Recycling Collection Advisory | March 20, 2020
The City of Cedar Rapids Solid Waste and Recycling division is working to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The division has adjusted collection procedures to reduce the risk of worker exposure and to limit the need to exit the collection vehicle:
- Place extra garbage bags with the garbage sticker visible to the driver on top of your gray GARBY cart.
- Hold onto any extra garbage bags that don’t fit on top of your GARBY cart until the next collection period.
- Tip: Use small bags rather than full-sized so more garbage fits in your GARBY cart.
- Only recycling inside your blue CURBY cart will be collected. No extra recycling boxes for now.
- Tip: Flatten items to fit more in.
- Glass collection is suspended. Hold onto glass until collection resumes.
Yard Waste Collection
- Collection of green YARDY (yard waste) carts continues.
Bulky Item & Special Haul Collection
- Temporarily suspended until further notice.
