Sound off: What is the ordinance about leaving your trash out seven days a week? We have a neighbor who, after trash day, starts putting sacks out next to the road again.
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: The City’s Environmental Code regulates when a person can and cannot put out trash for weekly pickup. Placing trash/trash receptacles prior to 24 hours of the collection day and failure to remove trash receptacles within 24 hours of the collection day are violations of the code. To file a complaint, contact the Code Enforcement Division at (785) 832-7700 or file a complaint online at www.lawrenceks.org/pds/code_violation.
