Who is responsible for caring for trash in alleys?
Loose trash in alleys often results from overfilling trash containers or from placing trash bags alongside a full container. Residents and businesses adjoining the alley are responsible for abiding by the city's sanitation rules and for keeping the alley clean. Illegal dumping should be reported immediately by calling 240-1416.
