Neat Neighbor Tips about Trash Bins
We often get calls and e-mails from neighbors concerned about trash bins in their community. Here are a few quick tips to help make sure you are a Neat Neighbor!

How long can I have my trash bins out?

  • 24 hours before your trash pickup day
  • 12 hours after your trash pickup day

Where can I store my trash bins?
  • In your garage
  • In a side yard
  • In a shed or outbuilding
  • In your backyard
  • Behind the front line of your house. For example, if your garage is a few feet behind the front line of your front door or porch, you can store your trash bins in front of your garage as long as they don’t stick out past that front line of your home.

What else do I need to know?
  • If you live in a neighborhood that has a Homeowners’ Association, be sure to check with that board to see if there are any additional rules or policies specific to the HOA.
