Trash has to be placed on the curb no later than <strong>7 AM the day of pickup.</strong> While it is legal to put trash out the night before pick-up, it's not preferable: trash left overnight is invariably pulled open and is a source of insects, rodents, and litter.

Other quick tips on keeping our  'hood clean...

Separate returnables. Place them in the blue plastic bin or some other container that is visible so pickers can easily identify and take what they are looking for.

Do not leave out items that won’t be picked up

Do not put household trash into neighborhood trash barrels.

Sweep up. You followed all the rules and someone else made a mess of your trash. Clean it up anyway. Why?  Because the City requires you to. Be a good neighbor, take care of where you live, whether you rent or own and whether you made the mess or not.

Offenders. Tell BVNA or the City about trash issues. BVNA will report trash issues to the City and ask that residences be ticketed. These tickets are now enforceable and will become liens on property. BVNA will also contact property owners and management companies and ask them to speak to tenants.
