Application for Temporary Service Hold
A Service Hold is allowed for suspending garbage services due to an extended absence of at least four (4)
consecutive weeks from your residence for vacation, medical reason or other valid reason. It is not a legitimate
absence to apply for a Service Hold to avoid required garbage service. A Service Hold may not be used to share
garbage services with another unit or property. All residential properties with 1-4 units must each have service
and a garbage cart per unit.
To be eligible for a Service Hold, the request must meet the following additional requirements:
You must place the Service Hold request with your hauler at least two (2) weeks in advance of the
requested start date of the Service Hold.
The length of time for the Service Hold request must be at least four (4) consecutive weeks minimum, but
no more than 26 weeks per year.
An RDU may only be placed onto a Service Hold up to two (2) occurrences per calendar year, and the
total time service is on hold cannot exceed 26 weeks in the calendar year.
