How should my recycling cart be stored?
The recycling carts can be stored in an enclosed structure (i.e. garage or shed) or inside of a residence; or can also be placed to the rear or side of a residence, garage or shed. The cart should be placed as close to the structure as possible and, if placed to the side, it should be place back at least one-half the distance of the length of the structure. View the East Lansing City Code for more information.

*It should be noted that some condominium and neighborhood associations may have additional regulations.
