Can I place a dumpster in the street in Union City?

Can I place a dumpster in the street in Union City?


What is allowed?

Renting a dumpster for medium to large home clean-outs and other projects is an excellent idea. We are very flexible about where we set our dumpsters, however, we still must comply with city, county and state laws. If the driveway is large enough we can almost always place a dumpster on private driveways, and parking areas. Some cities or counties will allow dumpsters to be placed on a curb or in city streets either with or without a permit, however, there are some that do not allow dumpsters to be placed anywhere besides private property.

What is not allowed?  

Union City does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. Union City will allow a temporary rental dumpster to be placed in the street as long as the person who is renting the dumpster applies and receives a permit or written consent. The city wants to be sure they do everything they can to help its citizens by helping to keep everyone safe. Also, as a suggestion, it is always a good idea to look at the HOA for the neighborhood you live in to see if they have restrictions for items in the street and/or the driveway.

(a)
It shall be a violation of this section to perform or cause to be performed any work, or to place or cause to be placed any item(s), within a road right-of-way without a valid right-of-way encroachment permit, issued by the director of the Union City Department of Public Services or his/her designee, except as otherwise provided herein. Such right-of-way encroachment permit shall be issued upon application on a form prepared by the director of the Union City Department of Public Services or his/her designee.
(b)
The following types of activities may be performed within a right-of-way without a right-of-way encroachment permit:
(1)
Planting and maintenance of plant material and vegetation, including grass, in areas where such materials are traditionally placed.
(2)
Placement and maintenance of mailboxes in areas where mailboxes are traditionally placed in accordance with applicable United States law and regulation.
(3)
Installation or maintenance of any utility infrastructure by any utility that holds a valid state or local franchise to use the right-of-way of the city or which otherwise pays franchise fees to the city in return for the use of the right-of-way of the city.
(c)
Applicants for a right-of-way encroachment permit shall pay a non-refundable application fee at the time of making application. Said fee shall be set as part of a resolution or a schedule of fees adopted by the mayor and council of the City of Union City.
(d)
In addition to such application fee, at the discretion of the director of the Union City Department of Public Services or his/her designee, a cash bond may be required from the applicant before a right-of-way encroachment permit will be issued. When required, the amount of said cash bond shall be determined by the director of the Union City Department of Public Services or his/her designee according to a rate sheet adopted by the mayor and council of the City of Union City.
