BRECKENRIDGE ” The Town of Breckenridge now requires all residential trash bins be placed curbside no earlier than 6 a.m., the day of pick-up.

Town council approved the ordinance following reports from staff that animals were foraging through receptacles, which were formerly allowed to be curbed at 12:01 a.m.

The bins must be removed from curbs by 10 p.m. the day they are emptied.

In addition, all trash bins not equipped with latches securing the lids must be stored inside. Exceptions include businesses using bins for customer convenience that have been designed to discourage wildlife; these bins must be emptied daily.

And with regard to town parking, the town has changed its rules to accommodate responsible folks who may have had too much to drink, according to a Breckenridge Police Department press release.

Vehicles are now allowed to park in public parking lots and along Main and Ridge Streets between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. through October.

It remains illegal to leave a vehicle abandoned on any public property more than 24 hours.

And town council has reinforced its 3-hour parking rule on the Upper and Lower Exchange parking structure at Ridge Street and Lincoln Avenue. Vehicles are no longer allowed to re-park within the structure between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
