Clark County Commissioners are going to create a new trash/garbage collection policy.  Recycling is good but your HOA won't let you store the new bins outside.  Already there are reports of Homeowner Association fining people for exposed garbage cans.  We must get on top of this program.  All we have to do is convince the County that we have the right to store our cans on our side yards without having to pay for a special BOX to hide the garbage bins in.  Yes, it is ridiculous. We have attached the UNLV reports that we have received.

                                                 Here are few comments from the final report. 

1,  Keep pick-up service closer together /homeowners assoc. Doesn't like bins sitting there long periods of time

2. The recycle is fine but the trash is only being picked up on Tuesday. They make us put the cans in our garage and the trash is stinking up the garage. We had to put it outside and we got in trouble because of the homeowners assoc. Six days is just too long to be (as written)

3. We have to keep our trash in the garage because of homeowners' association rules. However, the trash pickup is only once a week. In this heat, the trash stinks and it has to remain in our garage until pick up day. I would like to suggest trash pick up

4. Don't want big trash bins/no room in garage and not allowed to have bins outside per homeowner's assoc.

And this is from the Survey itself. 

The 15.5% who reported that they are having problems storing the trash/recycling carts were asked whether or not they had ever been cited or fined by their Homeowners Association and/or Code Enforcement for not storing your cart(s) correctly? From the subset of those who are having storage problems 27 respondents reported that they had been fined or cited.  This represents 25.7% of the subset of 105 who indicated having storage problems, but only 4% of the total survey sample.
