The City of Cedar Rapids Solid Waste & Recycling Division uses a pay-as-you-throw program to make sure GarbyCartthe cost of waste disposal is fairly distributed across households.

Pay-As-You-Throw
Every customer is allotted one 35-gallon GARBY cart. You must bag your garbage and place the bag in your cart for collection. If you have more garbage than will fit in your GARBY, you will need to purchase an extra garbage sticker for each additional item. An extra GARBY cart can be purchased for an additional monthly fee by calling the Solid Waste & Recycling Division at 319-286-5897

Automated Garbage
The Cedar Rapids Solid Waste & Recycling Division uses a fully automated garbage collection system in order to reduce worker injury and staffing needs. In order to help ensure collection is safe and efficient, customers should leave 3 feet between their GARBY, YARDY and CURBY carts and any other objects like mailboxes or utility poles.

How to use GARBY

  • You can put up to 100 pounds of bagged garbage in the GARBY cart each week.

  • Leave 3 feet between GARBY and other objects.

  • All garbage must be bagged before placing it in GARBY for collection.

  • Extra garbage must be placed in a 35-gallon, 40 pound or less, bag with an extra garbage sticker attached. Extra garbage can be placed on top of the GARBY cart with the sticker clearly visible from the street or next to the GARBY cart.

  • Use the GARBY cart even if you only have a small bag of garbage each week.
