- Brush and limbs must be tied in 3 foot long bundles.
- Tie newspapers with string or put them in brown paper bags.

It is important to note:
- No property shall be used or maintained as a dumping ground for rubbish.
- Garbage or other waste shall be kept in covered sanitary containers or heavy-duty trash bags within rear yards. Neither trash containers nor recycling containers are to be kept in front of side yards.
