As it turns out, the area between the curb and the street at my address is very slim. Solid waste is uniformly placed (very close to traffic) in this area after 7pm on the proper dates, however garbage day was on the huge snowstorm last week. We placed the garbage a short ways in to avoid having to balance it ever so carefully on the 2 foot wide bank, it was not picked up. As a result, we were issued a warning. I know now to place it properly regardless.
Question: If a slight wind, snow plow or natural teetering rolls it dangerously into traffic… do I have to clean it up?
