Neighborhoods and streets look better when people don’t leave their trash cans on the street year-round. The City believes it’s fair to ask people to roll their carts back to their houses. Helping your neighborhood look nice and clean is the neighborly thing to do.
If you are going out of town for work or a vacation, maybe you could ask your neighbors to roll your cart in for you. If that isn’t an option, you can contact Public Works and let staff know. Our staff is willing to work with residents when various circumstances arise. Of course, if a resident goes out of town every week and can’t roll their cart back to their house on a regular basis, then that could be a problem.
