Homeowners or commercial entities may place a refuse container on a City street or sidewalk to clean out bulk items only from their home or business.
These containers may not be used for perishable waste or construction material from a worksite requiring a Department of Buildings (DOB) or DOT Construction permit.
The refuse container must be of commercial grade and placed on the City street or sidewalk by a carting company registered with DOT. Permits must be obtained by the carting company, not by the property or business owner. Each permit allows placement of one refuse container for up to 5 consecutive days.
