Waste & Recycling Notice
If you have received a red Waste & Recycling Notice, you have violated
trash rules. The Department of Public Works will leave a notice to any 1-6
family building that sets out trash improperly or does not recycle correctly
using a red notice. The notice will be filled out by Public Works listing
the problem (infraction) with your trash or recycling using a number. Below
is a sample notice with the list of problems (infractions).
For example, Infraction #10 is that your building left hazardous waste on the
curb. This is unacceptable and must be removed. You will need to take the waste
back into your property, check the schedule on our website for the next
hazardous waste collection day and drive the waste to the collection location.
Another example, Infraction #26 is that you are leaving carts on the curb
after collection is completed. This is not allowed. Both trash and recycling
carts must be brought back into the back yard after collection.
A Waste & Recycling Inspector may send a follow-up letter and may fine your
property if the unacceptable waste or presentation of trash continues.
Public Works will make training available for tenants if landlords request
training. Appointments for training can be scheduled through Public Works by
