Garbage Cans – Out of Sight!

Contributing to the orderliness of our community is a community affair. Ordinance No. 915, regulates the times when containers for garbage and rubbish can be placed to the curb line. Garbage cans and other containers for garbage and rubbish may not be placed at the curb line until 5:00 p.m. of the day previous to the day set for collection of residential garbage. Emptied containers can be left at the curb only until 9:00 p.m. the day of collection. The emptied containers must be brought back from the curb line and placed at their normal storage place, abutting or in the residence at all other times. The Code Enforcement Officer requests that empty containers be placed at the back of the house or rear side yard. Do not place your containers at the front of your property. Help beautify our neighborhood by adhering to this ordinance.
