There is a City Ordinance that all refuse/recycling containers need to be stored out of the public view, except on collection day. On collection day, containers can be placed at the front property line after 4 p.m., and then must be moved back out of public view by 8 p.m. Violators are subject to ticketing. 

Savage residents and businesses contract with private refuse haulers in order to dispose of waste.
