Unauthorized Removal of Waste and Recyclable Materials

There has been some concern and confusion as to the legality of persons removing waste and recyclables from The Movie Colony curbsides.

The City of Palm Springs Municipal Code 6.04.250 is as follows:
(a) It is unlawful for any person, other than a person holding a contract for the collection of waste and recyclable materials, to take, remove or appropriate for his own use any waste or recyclable materials which have been placed in any street or alley for collection or removal, whether such waste or recyclable materials are placed in regular containers or not.
(b) In addition to criminal enforcement, the city and the authorized recycling agent have the independent authority to civilly enforce any provisions of this chapter, to and including the authority to seek treble damages pursuant to California Government Code Sections 66764 and 66761. The city manager may invoke these remedies, or any of them whenever he deems it appropriate. (Ord. 1429 32, 1992: prior code 3801)
