In an effort to address some concerns of citizens and to clean up the right-of-ways throughout the city, citizens are being reminded to adhere to Solid Waste ordinance policies regarding time of placement and time of removal of trash carts.  Beginning the evening before and no later than 6:00am on the day of collection, customers should place their container (s) at the curbside in front of the customer’s residence.  The container should be removed from the curbside and returned to a location behind the customer’s residence or to a place that is outside of City’s right-of-way and out of view from the right-of-way no later than 6:00am following the scheduled day of service. City of Douglas officials will begin issuing citations to customers routinely allowing containers to remain at curbside outside of the hours specified.  Customers who continue to place or leave carts beyond specified times will be deemed to create a nuisance, punishable by fines.   The current fine for trash citations are as follows:  1st offense will be a $25.00; 2nd offense and beyond will be a $75.00 fine each offense.
