You can put your trash out as early as 5 p.m. and not be subject to fines.
The Streets Department yesterday announced that through March 31, trash and recyclables can be set out at 5 p.m. the day before regular collection days.
This change is citywide and affects residents and small businesses whose trash is collected by the city.
The set-out time from April 1 to Sept. 30 will remain at no earlier than 7 p.m. on the evening before the day of collection.
The new regulation will ensure that citizens have the ability to set out their trash during daylight hours throughout the entire year. This change was enabled by recent City Council legislation. ••
