Advanced Disposal
Pursuant to City of Detroit Ordinance # 22-2-43
Residents must store their container on their property, in either the side or rear yard. The container cannot be stored at the curb, in the front yard or on the front porch. Storage in this manner allows the premises to be maintained in an orderly, aesthetically pleasing manner that will help the resident and the City in its efforts to keep Detroit clean. The container has a
hinged lid that opens and shuts easily and is designed to keep odors in, but rain and rodents out.
