Did you know Dumpsters are no longer allowed in public back alleys and boulevards within the Vernon Business Improvement Area (VBIA)?
This was supposed to cut down the random dumping issue as well as the rodent problem.
Portable garbage containers will be allowed in public back alleys and boulevards in the VBIA for pick up only during the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. This does not apply to dumpsters located on private property. But what about restaurant owners that only carrying on business in the evenings and weekends? It has been noted that rodents are still an issue.
Currently restaurants located within the VBIA will be exempted from this requirement until December 31, 2009. What happens then?
