Get a New or Additional Green Garbage Cart
City of Gastonia Solid Waste residential customers must have a green 96-gallon cart that is provided by the City for garbage disposal. If your home does not have a green City of Gastonia cart, please contact us and we will have one delivered. The City provides one green 96-gallon rollout cart for garbage to each residential unit at a $8.50 per month fee. Customers who need a cart for a newly constructed home will be charged a one-time fee of $50.00 for a new cart.
Prior to requesting a second garbage cart, please ensure you are utilizing your grey recycle cart to the largest extent possible.
For additional carts, there is a one-time fee of $50.00 per cart per residence as well as an additional $8.50 per month fee for each additional cart. All carts remain property of the City of Gastonia. If you have an additional cart and are moving please contact us so we may pick up the extra cart from your current residence. If you are moving within the City of Gastonia and would like to keep an existing second cart, there will be no additional $50 charge and we will ensure the second cart is placed at your new location. However, you will need to contact customer service to notify the city of your new address.
For more information, please see the Quick Links section to the right.
Offices for Solid Waste are open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
