A reminder that Brea City Code states that all trash receptacles must be stored out of site.  That means trash cans have to be put behind a fence at all times except on trash day.  Also, trash cans are to be rolled back out of site by sunset of trash day.

Architectural Control makes monthly inspections of all the homes in Brea Glenbrook and residences that are in violation of the City Codes will receive a letter. Thank you in advance for following the rules for trash receptacles.
