What if my container is stolen or destroyed?

If the container is damaged or stolen, the following policy applies:

  • If the damage is your fault, you will be required to pay for a replacement. For example, any container that is destroyed by hot ashes or coals shall be the responsibility of the customer, and it shall be replaced at the customer's expense.
  • If the container is stolen from your residence at a time other than when it should normally be out for collection, you will be required to pay for a replacement. A stolen container must be reported to the Police Department and the Solid Waste Division. However, if the city damages your container, or it is stolen while out on a collection day, your container will be replaced at no cost to you.
