 CURBSIDE GARBAGE is the bagged household waste that is generated from normal everyday living. It includes the waste accumulation and byproducts of animal or vegetable foodstuffs resulting from the preparation, use, cooking, processing and handling of food, or other matter which is subject to decomposition, decay, breakdown or the generation of noxious or offensive gases and odors, or which during or after decay, may serve as breeding or feeding material for flies, insects or animals. These non-recyclable household waste items are to be stored inside the Waste Industries roll-out containers and placed out weekly for collection and disposal. This service is provided by Waste Industries, Inc.
