Landlords' Responsibility to Remove Trash
States and localities have different rules and methods for waste management, but their rules must follow the federal guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency. The state and local regulations usually define the frequency of pickups and rules about safely storing trash. Landlords must follow these regulations on behalf of their tenants. Some states and cities also require tenants to have a recycling option, and certain jurisdictions have mandatory recycling which will fine tenants or landlords who throw away recyclable materials.
