When full, weight not to exceed 20 kilograms including receptacle.
City Garbage Collectors do not reach into cans to pull garbage/refuse out that has become compacted.
If plastic bags have been torn apart by rodents, dogs, or other causes, it is solely the responsibility of the property owner/occupant to collect scattered garbage and refuse in order to place it a new container/plastic bag. Plastic bags are to be securely tied closed at the top, be strong enough to withstand normal handling and lifting.
Containers are to have a water tight cover and smooth rim; liquids and/or free water shall not be deposited in receptacles for collection, including rain water. Containers must be in good structural and sanitary condition and have fixed handles.
City garbage Collectors shall not be required to enter upon private property.
Enclosed garbage 'sheds' shall have the side nearest the alley, lane or public roadway open and not obstructed in any way by the use of doors or other containment measures in order to provide free access to the City Garbage Collector without the opening of doors, gates, lids or other restrictive enclosures.
Unacceptable Items for Pick up by the City Garbage Collector:
Trade refuse (building materials); stones; earth; ashes; manure; excrement; tree stumps; roots; turf; weeds; and garden waste.
Any highly combustible, flammable, or explosive material, liquid or waste.
For collection in excess of three (3) garbage receptacles, including plastic bags, tags are available for purchase at City Hall for $1.50 per tag. Garbage should be placed out for collection by 7:30 am. Routes and pick-up times may be changed without notice.
