Some Waste Carts Missing After Flash Flooding

By Forrest Saunders

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Where’s my cart? That’s what a few in Cedar Rapids have been asking, recently.

The city said a number of garbage, recycling and yard waste carts were swept away during flash flooding about two weeks ago.

When people searched for them, some carts went back to the wrong homes, others are still missing.

To straighten things out, the city is asking those who think they might have the wrong cart, or are missing one, to call.

“We’ll give them their cart number, and if they can relocate their cart great. If not, let us know and we will get you a new cart,” said Megan Murphy, the city’s utilities communication coordinator

Those who want to check cart ID numbers can call the Solid Waste & Recycling Division at (319) 286-5897.
