Q: What can I do about people putting stuff in my curbside collection containers?
A: The best way to discourage this is to keep your roll carts out of sight on non-collection days. Actually, residents should remove their empty roll carts, garbage containers and glass recycling bins from the curb within 24 hours of pick-up.
Leaving containers out creates potential hazards for pedestrians and vehicles. And can encourage passers-by to use a container that’s close to them at the time of need (dog poop bags, anyone!?) instead of carrying items to their own containers or using a public trash can.
