Landlord Fined for Uncovered Trash Receptacles
LVT Number: #24739
DOS issued a violation notice to landlord for uncovered receptacles. The DOS inspector noted four cans uncovered, exposing household waste likely to be scattered about. Landlord claimed that the 30-unit building had a live-in super and that eight metal garbage cans abutted a fence in front of the building. These cans all had lids that were chained to the fence. Landlord stated that tenants brought their trash down to the cans and that when the cans became full, the super removed the trash and placed it in large black trash bags that were stored against the building until collection time.
