It’s a sanitation violation for household trash to be placed inside or next to public trash bins. The sidewalk bins are meant for portable disposable items such as coffee cups or food wrappers – things consumed on the go – and not the dumping of residential or commercial trash. The problem has gotten increasingly worse and sanitation enforcement is becoming more stringent. If you get caught, the fines are steep, so just don’t do it.
