The Ordinance for Garbage Stickers requires the Property Owner to purchase the garbage stickers. In past years, tenants were able to purchase garbage stickers but this will now transmission to the responsibility of the Property Owners. 

The reason is the amount it costs to service trash determines the fee for stickers and this amount is charged per property to the Property Owner. When fees are not paid the fine is issued to the Property Owner, not the tenant. The Property Owner may decide to add the fee to the rent/lease or they may handle this in a way that fits their situation. 

Each address is responsible for the fees and Property Owners living next to each other will be responsible for the fee for their unit of a duplex or double block.
