Solid Waste Collection To Be Impacted by Snow Event

Solid Waste Collection To Be Impacted by Snow Event

December 21, 2022

Cedar Rapids garbage/recycling/compost collection are being impacted by recent snow events. Thursday and Friday garbage and recycling collection were delayed until Monday, Dec. 26. Yard waste/compost and glass recycling collection will be delayed until Monday, Jan. 2.

Garbage and recycling collection for the week of Monday, Dec. 26, is as scheduled but may be delayed; residents are asked to have GARBY and CURBY garbage and recycling carts to collection areas by 7 a.m. on their normal collection day all week, and to leave carts out until they are collected, even if there is a delay. "When in doubt, leave it out." 

There will be no delay in garbage/recycling/compost collection for the New Year's holiday, due to the holiday falling on a weekend this year. 

Additionally, the Solid Waste and Recycling Division reminds residents that placing carts or extra tagged garbage bags on snowbanks creates a safety hazard for crews, and to please place carts and bags along one half of the driveway or to clear a section of snow next to the driveway in the normal collection area so that carts and bags can be safely collected from street level. More information is available at CityofCR.com/Garbage.

Residents can also report missed collections or ask questions by calling 319-286-5897 or by using the City's My CR reporting tool or Mobile CR mobile app. More information is available at CityofCR.com/MyCR and CityofCR.com/MobileCR.
