Codes for Sanitation Services:

  • When to put out and take in containers: “Where garbage or recyclable materials are collected from the street curb line adjacent to the property, a container must be placed there no earlier than 6:00pm of the afternoon preceding the collection day and must be removed to a point at the side or rear of the structure not later than 8:00am of the day following collection.”
  • About the lid: Close it tight! “A container must not be overloaded to the point where spillage occurs from overflow, wind, or handling. A container must be closed or secured at the top to prevent spillage.”
