The request must be made in writing to city staff for review and approval or denial. Requests for small commercial garbage service which are denied may be appealed to the City Manager.

In the event of multi-phase business/commercial/industrial park developments, it is possible additional commercial garbage containers will be needed as development occurs, based on the amount of material generated from each of the customers.
