Summer Pro Tips From Code Enforcement 

David Hrdlicka, Code Enforcement Officer - (614) 559 - 4248

As we roll into the heat of summer, we want to remind you of a couple of code enforcement issues we typically run into this time of year. Make sure your grass is being cut on a regular basis - especially with all of this rain we are getting! This also includes the area of grass between the sidewalk and the street. Please make sure you are disposing of your trash appropriately. Bexley Ordinance 1060.02 (a) requires that every occupant of every dwelling shall provide a sufficient number of receptacles for the deposit of all garbage or trash. Such receptacles shall be waterproof, rodent proof, and have tight fitting lids. Trash bags alone are unacceptable. Lastly, don't neglect the appearance of your alley. This is one of the easiest spots to forget!

Please contact Rumpke (800-828-8171) at least 24 hours before your regularly scheduled collection to request a large item pick-up and/or excessive amounts of trash. Televisions cannot exceed 32 inches for curbside pick-up. Any mattresses or upholstered furniture must be completely sealed in disposable plastic for removal.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Hrdlicka at (614) 559 - 4248.
