The LA City Ordinance relating to trash containers states that containers may be placed at the curb no earlier than 6 pm on the evening before the day of collection and that containers must be removed no later than 8 pm on the day of collection. Three feet are required between bins when placed for pickup.
At all other times, containers must be stored out of sight, away from the street and behind a gate, if possible.
If a resident habitually violates this ordinance, such violation may be reported to the Sanitation Customer Service Call Center at (800) 773-2489. Reports are confidential and may be anonymous. For more information, visit the City website.
