Neighborhood Focus: Trash Containers

From time to time the city receives complaints about trash cans left out in public view after the trash pickup day. In November, Community Preservation inspectors focus on educating property owners about the City’s requirements on when containers need to be moved and where trash containers should be stored. Trash cans may not be placed on the street any earlier than 5:00 p.m. the day before collection and must be removed by 10:00 p.m. on the day of collection. If you see garbage containers left out in the street or on the sidewalk that is not on a designated trash day in your area, please feel free to contact the Community Preservation Division at (626) 285-5240 or send us a request using our Request Tracker.
