Proposed Trash Ordinance Change There are some changes proposed relating to the collection of trash and rubbish that will be considered at the next Council meeting on October 23rd at 7PM.
The meeting is held in Council Chambers at the City/County Building, 800 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
Please click on this LINK to read the Ordinance in its entirety.
This Ordinance sets time and place parameters for removal of trash cans in order to safeguard the public health and safety.
Basically, the trash cans must be removed from the point of collection by the end of your trash day.
If not, a complaint would need to be called in and a code officer would respond.
If the trash can is still there, a violation notice will be posted (or mailed) and the property owner would be given a few days to remove the trash can.
There would be a reinspection and if the violation still exists, court charges would be filed.
I want to hear your thoughts on this change.
Do you support or oppose this legislation?
Please respond as it will determine how I will vote on this Tuesday.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.
New Castle County Councilman Tim Sheldon
