Commercial Waste Disposal

The City requires merchants and commercial establishments to either arrange with a private carter to have their garbage and recyclables collected or register as a self-hauler with the Business Integrity Commission. Commercial trash put out for private collection must be placed on the sidewalk against the building, not at the curb or in the gutter.

Under the Professional Fee Program, businesses operating in residential buildings may qualify to have the City collect their garbage and recyclables. The City charges a fee for this service based on the amount of waste.
