Trash and Recycling Violations

Accumulated trash attracts rats and other animals, and is unsanitary. Properties with accumulations of trash or scattered litter or debris may be issued a Notice of Violation with fines of up to $150.

Trash must have a $2.00 sticker attached to each container to be picked up. If you have large furniture to dispose of, put two trash stickers on it and set it out on your regular collection day. Learn more about trash and recycling pick-up, including what we can and cannot collect.
