When at all possible, Debris Boxes shall be placed on private property. If the private property does not have the space for placing a Debris Box, or the location on private property is inconvenient for the owner, then a Debris Box may be placed within the public right-of-way, such as a street.
Placement of Debris Box within the public right-of-way requires an Encroachment Permit issued by the Public Works Department.
It is your responsibility to contact one of the three approved collection companies and coordinate delivery and removal of a debris box. Collection companies charge a fee for the placement of a debris box on your property and are responsible for diverting or recycling a percentage of your waste.
Collection service companies may not place a debris box in the within the public right-of-way without first obtaining an Encroachment Permit from the Public Works Department. It is highly recommended that you discuss placement of a debris box with a Service provider PRIOR
to arranging and paying for service.
