It seems GC works well :)

If you care about disk usage of the server that riak is running on,
there is another factor. You need backend compaction to reduce disk usage.
It will require putting/deleting many objects or large objects and executing GC.

For details of backend compaction, please refer docuemnts [1] [2].
Riak CS uses, probabry you know, both bitcask and leveldb.
