Solid waste is garbage, trash, rubbish, refuse or other discarded material that is not going to be reused. In addition to being unsightly loose trash and litter can clog storm drains.

Tips for handling Solid Waste:

  • Make sure waste makes it into the garbage bin.
  • "Bag and Tie" your waste
  • Keep Dumpster lids closed
  • If you see solid waste issues such as over flowing garbage bins, contact your municipality.
  • Report anything other than stormwater going to a storm drain.
