Improper placement of Yard Trimmings

In recent months, the City of Moultrie has noticed an increase in the improper placement of yard
trimmings. When yard trimmings are placed within the roadways, they begin to accumulate in
the drainage system. This causes problems for the proper drainage of roadways and it is very
costly to the City of Moultrie to clean out the drainage system.
Beginning January 1, 2016, the City of Moultrie will begin issuing citations to anyone in
violation of the City Ordinance, Section 94-96 – “Precollection”. The ordinance has been listed
below for your convenience.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

City of Moultrie Code of Ordinances
Sec. 94-96. – Precollection.

(b)
Yard trimmings location. All yard trimmings shall be located for collection adjacent to or on
the property upon which the waste contained therein is generated. The public works
department shall work with the residential or commercial customer to have the yard
trimmings placed for collection in a mutually agreeable location, but the final decision upon
collection placement shall be the responsibility of the public works department. Yard
trimmings may normally be placed for collection at any time as follows:

(1)
On streets with curb and gutter, yard trimmings shall be placed for collection
immediately behind the curb on the street right-of-way.

(2)
On streets without curb and gutter, yard trimmings shall be placed for collection
between the edge of the pavement and the edge of the ditch insofar as practical from
the pavement so as not to impede traffic flow.

(3)
In alleys, yard trimmings shall be placed for collection adjacent to the alley
immediately upon the property from which such yard trimmings were generated.

(4)
At no time shall yard trimmings be placed in ditches, gutters, drains, walkways, alleys,
or streets, on top of in-ground garbage liners or water meters, or within ten feet of a
fire hydrant
