How long should the city give people to pick up trash before citing them under the city’s trash ordinance?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 18, 2005
“I say two weeks. That gives them enough time to make arrangements if they don’t have a way to haul it off.”
“I would say no longer than two to three weeks after they post the notice. That’s more than ample time.”
“Something like three days, just because is doesn’t look very clean or sanitary to have trash in the lawn.”
“A week is fair, I’d say. That’s plenty of time to clean it up.”
