Evictions, Set-outs, Excessive Bulk
  • Evictions - when the court authorizes an eviction, the landlord is responsible for the clean-up of the remaining debris from the street following the court ordered 24 hour period.
  • Set-outs - when a landlord sets-out material from a tenant and it is more than 6 bulk items, he then has 24 hours to remove it from the street.
  • Excessive bulk - when bulk set-outs exceed 6 bulk items, a tag will be placed on the items, notifying property owners that he/she have 24 hours to remove the excess debris.
Following these 3 examples, Solid Waste Management shall make contact with the landlord or homeowner by either tagging the front door or by sending a first class notification letter giving notice of 24 hours to remove the items. After the 24 hours, Solid Waste Management will collect the items and issue a collection charge to the landlord, property manager or homeowner.
