Explanation

This legislation repeals and replaces the current Columbus City Code, Title 13 to update, reorganize and provide clarification for the regulation of the waste stream and the collection of that waste stream.

The City’s goal with this legislation is to provide a clean and safe environment for all residents and visitors by providing a mechanism for enforcement for solid waste and illegal dumping activities. After multiple meetings with stakeholders such as residents and community members and a scan of policies and actions in other cities, this Code addresses much needed tools to curb and ultimately end illegal dumping activities.

Columbus City Code, Title 13 has not been updated for more than 20 years and did not allow for civil enforcement of activities that are negatively affecting our neighborhoods. This new Code creates civil violations that are enforceable by the Solid Waste Investigators, within the Division of Refuse Collection, and any law enforcement personnel and will provide the mechanisms needed to address the issues surrounding solid waste. This code also provides clarification on a variety of Solid Waste concerns identified and provides clear direction around those issues.
