Refrigerators and Neglected Household Equipment
When refrigerators, freezers, stoves, and similar household equipment are left outside they present a temptation for children to play in them. The danger of suffocation can be minimized by storing these items within a secure structure and locking the appliance door in a shut position with a chain and lock or by facing the appliance to the wall so the door cannot be opened.

Please contact Code Enforcement immediately if a refrigerator or similar household equipment is observed being stored outside.

Storing Refuse
Storing household garbage in waterproof containers with tight fitting lids will promote a healthy living environment for you and your neighbors. Additionally, providing sufficient trash service and storing trash cans out of the public view, except on trash pickup day, will promote a healthy and attractive environment throughout the City.
