Recently the City of Storm Lake passed amendments to the Garbage Ordinance. The changes will be in effect on January 1, 2019. One key change to the ordinance requires garbage to be in a can when placed on the curb for collection:
Each person who shall store garbage or recyclable materials out of doors on premises owned or occupied by that person or who places garbage out of doors in a place readily accessible to the collector for collection shall provide and use cans suitable in capacity for the storage of garbage and recyclable materials accumulating in a normal collection period of seven days.
Garbage Hauling Services has informed the City of their plans to provide suitable cans to their customers. More information will be available from Garbage Hauling Services. Their website is www.garbagehaulingserviceinc.com.
Watch for more information from the City coming soon.
