What does City code dictate as far as trash recepticles at new-home construction sites? I see some builders use 3 pieces of plywood to make a traiangular "trash bin" while other builder have nothing at all. There are all sorts of trash in my neighborhood including styrofoam plates, styrofoam cups, plastic bottles, trash from construction material including pieces of black plastic, pieces of insulation, cardboard boxes, etc. The house across from me has all this trash blowing around the block because the workers do not use/have a trasah can. Does the City require it? I am refering to the Grayhawk area.

Builders are required to provide trash receptacles on each job site. There are no specific requirements for size or materials and range from roll off type dumpsters to plywood enclosures. Unfortunatley, we can't monitor them to make the contactors use them. The strong winds recently can cause the trash problem to get out of control rather quickly. Contact Building Inspections at 972 335-5580, ext. 189 or 153, or Code Enforcement at ext. 188 to report specific problem areas.
