Temporary Services

The city maintains non-exclusive franchise agreements with additional service providers for temporary, short-term, or single-occurrence projects. These services are primarily used on construction sites, for remodeling or repair projects, or to facilitate the removal of junk, surplus goods, and debris by furnishing a roll-off or other commercial container to transport solid waste to a separate facility.

Authorized Temporary Service Providers

Temporary services do not include solid waste disposal and collection services that are required as part of the normal business operations of a commercial, industrial, or public enterprise. They also do not include services for which an exclusive franchise is granted.
