Trash containers and Dumpsters

Go Back

The City of Kennett continues to work on the Federally mandated Stormwater regulations. Why is this important to you? The Stormwater program requires everyone to be involved in some way if you live or work in Kennett. One of the areas that we are working on now is called "illicit discharge", encompassing numerous things that causes pollution to our water (remember we drink it, bathe in it and in many cases use it in some form for recreation). This tip[ covers trash, from our homes but more specifically your business -- and YES also our LITTER. Regulations we are talking about are trash container regardless of the owner or the location. You are responsible for the trash until the trash company arrives to pick up the trash. The trash company is responsible while loading and transporting all the material in the trash container -- theirs or your; being solid or liquid. The City is requesting your help in decreasing the amount of trash in Kennett! You need containers that have "closed lids" to keep the trash in and the rain out, and containers that have a "good solid bottoms in them as well as a plug to keep the liquids inside". There is shared responsibilities, yours until the trash company arrives to remove the trash and theirs when they begin handling the trash. If we all work together as citizens, employees and businesses owners to assist the trash companies, we can have a lot cleaner city
