Can I place a dumpster in the street in Locust Grove?


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?  

The City of Locust Grove does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. City of Locust Grove 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.
Use of public streets, alleyways, sidewalks, and roads of the city which blocks or impedes vehicular, bicycle, and/or pedestrian movement within the public right-of-way for extended periods of time shall not be permitted; unless permission has been granted by the mayor and city council as part of a special events permit.
B.
The placement of an object which blocks or impedes vehicular, bicycle, and/or pedestrian movement within the public right-of-way for extended periods of time in any portion of a public street, alleyway, sidewalk or road of the city shall be prohibited unless the mayor and city council specifically approve the use of such object as part of a special events permit.
C.
For use in this section, the phrase "block or impede" means to occupy the public right-of-way used for vehicular, bicycle, and/or pedestrian movement in such a manner as to endanger the safety of the traveling public or result in damage to personal or real property of another person or entity.
D.
For use in this section, the phrase "extended periods of time" means more than thirty consecutive minutes where not part of an official action of government or utility or emergency operation.
E.
For use in this section, the term "object" under this section includes but is not limited to recreational equipment such as basketball goals, skateboard or bicycle ramps, soccer and hockey goals, and the like.
F.
For use in this section, the term "special events permit" means an event or activity approval by the mayor and city council such as a street party, parade, cultural or arts festival, a sporting event, street fair or similar activity. Applications for special events permits shall be filed with the city clerk at least forty-five days prior to the date of the event, unless waived by the mayor and city council at an intervening meeting date.
G.
Notwithstanding this section or the grant of a special events permit, the mayor and council may identify and prohibit entirely any and all uses which block or impede vehicular, bicycle, and/or pedestrian movement within certain designated public rights-of-way (or portions thereof) of the city for any period of time.
