How can I request a trash container replacement?

By calling the City's 311 call center.

For 311:


Look in ELEMOS for a registered container at the address. If there is a registered container (tag, serial number, and a variation of one or the other), then put in for a container verification. If there is no tote information present, put in for a container delivery. It is very important to add the notes to the call and ELEMOS job to (in the job notes) determine the charge associated with the container delivery.
