The Muncie StarPress published an article in today’s paper that explained the city ordinance related to trash removal. In brief, city ordinance and sanitary district regulations require that residents place their toters outside by 7:00 am on their scheduled trash collection day and bring them back in by 7:00 pm the same day. Failure to do so may result in a warning notice from Muncie Sanitary District code enforcement officers. These regulations are in place not only for aesthetic reasons, but to protect the public from possible traffic accidents if the toters are knocked into the street.
