The Iowa City City Council will consider an ordinance that would require waste containers to be stored out of public view.

The ordinance amends the housing code and solid-waste ordinance to require storage of residential solid waste, yard waste, and recycling containers to be located behind the front building line of a residential structure or screened from public view.

City staff says the requirement will help neighborhood appearance, reduce trash issues, and support neighborhood stabilization.

An ordinance requires three considerations to pass. The first reading will be at the Feb. 19 meeting.
