Please Keep Your Trash Bins Clean and Graffiti-Free!

As San Francisco Public Works expands efforts to keep Chinatown clean, we need your help. We
want to remind business and property owners of the code requirement to keep refuse bins
clean and graffiti-free.

To help you get a fresh start with the black, blue and green bins, Recology has agreed to swap
out bins tagged with graffiti for new clean ones as one-time courtesy. In return, you need to
keep the bins looking good by washing them and removing graffiti on a regular basis. Failure to
do so could result in a $250 fine, under Public Works Code 173e.

In addition, if you have overflowing bins, that may mean you do not have sufficient refusecollection
service and may require larger bins. Or, you may need to sign up for Recology's lock
service to keep scavengers from rummaging through the bins and leaving trash on the ground.
We are happy to assist you in finding the right solution. Contact Public Works for more
information: 415-641-2635.

We appreciate your partnership in keeping the historic and vibrant Chinatown neighborhood
clean and beautiful. Together, we will succeed.


請保持您垃圾桶清潔乾淨零塗鴉!
三藩市工務局加強馬力清潔華埠,我們需要您的配合與幫助。我們在此提醒商業和物業業
主,您有責任維持您垃圾桶的清潔,而且上面不能有任何塗鴉。
為了讓您能夠得到潔淨的黑色,藍色和綠色垃圾桶,垃圾公司Recology 已經同意將已被塗
鴉的垃圾桶換成乾淨的垃圾桶。這是一次性的特別服務。之後,我們需要您負起維持這些
垃圾桶美觀的責任,除了定期清洗之外,還要清除外部的塗鴉。如果您沒有照規定執行,
根據“工務局條例”第173e 條的規定,您有可能面對250 美元的罰款。
另外,如果你的垃圾桶過滿,這顯示你的垃圾服務也許不足,可能需要更大容量的垃圾
桶。此外,您可以跟Recology 垃圾公司登記加鎖服務,以防止露宿者在垃圾桶中亂翻,並
將垃圾散落在地上,造成髒亂。我們很樂意幫您找到有效的解決方法。工務局聯絡電話:
