Per City Ordinance ...
Trash receptacles must be placed within a totally enclosed building or placed upon an area of the rear yard of the occupant's property so as not to create a nuisance to surrounding residents.
Per city ordinance, you should not put out waste or recycling bins earlier than 24 hours prior to the scheduled collection day. It is the responsibility of both the property owner and the property occupant to place refuse at the designated collection site within a refuse bin, sealed container or plastic bag to prevent objectionable odors, or spillage of refuse upon any public or private site.
All receptacles must be removed from such areas no later than 12 hours following the actual collection.

If mailbox repair work is required because it was hit by a car, truck, plow, etc. and you do not know who hit it, it is important that you work with your neighbors to determine the details that can be reported to the police and the board. Photos are strongly suggested if a third party or insurance claim is involved. If you know who hit the mailbox, please contact the party that hit the mailbox and a member of the board.
