Code of Ordinance No. 2013-06
Effective August 2013, the City of Hinesville implemented Ordinance No. 2013-06 to establish requirements for time and placement of trash receptacles and roll-out containers for curbside collection. This ordinance establishes proper placement of trash receptacles and roll-out containers for curbside collection. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a citation for public nuisance.
What does the ordinance say?
The main points of the ordinance are as follows:
Place roll-out containers curbside after 5 p.m. on the day before your scheduled collection
Remove roll-out containers from the curbside and place them adjacent to your home and away from the curb before 6:30 a.m. the day after your scheduled collection
For example: If your trash collection day is Friday, then you may place your container out at 5 p.m. on Thursday but must retrieve it before 6:30 a.m. on Saturday
