The City’s municipal code requires its refuse haulers to retrieve your trash, recycling, and green waste containers directly from your concealed trash enclosure. All specified trash containers must be out of the public view at all times. The main reasoning for this is due to the vermin that are within the City and would create a huge mess along our streets if the cans were not within an enclosure.
