Section 24-95(m). In all residential or agricultural districts, household appliances or furniture manufactured and sold for indoor use may not be placed in yards. In addition, building materials may not be stored outside a fully enclosed building unless the materials are being used on the lot for agricultural operations or substantial and continuing construction activities.


Properties with trash, debris or litter often have other ordinance violations. When you call to report a problem, please be prepared to let the County staff know about any other problems on the property. To help the inspectors address and resolve all problems concerning the property, they will need to know:

  • Is the property vacant or occupied?
  • Are there any inoperable or unlicensed vehicles or trailers on the property?
  • Is there any trash, garbage or litter on the property that is not stored in a covered, watertight container?
  • Have you seen any evidence of rats on the property?
