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 six (6) bulk items, he then has 24 hours to remove it from the street.
    Excessive bulk – when bulk set-outs exceed six (6) bulk items, a tag will be placed on the items, notifiying property owners that he/she have 24 hours to remove the excess debris.

    Following these three 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.
