Sec. 38-61. - Cart system. Placement and removal of carts. Occupants shall place garbage for curbside pick up in carts provided by the city. On the evening before each day assigned by the city for collection in the occupant's area, the cart will be placed on the curb, in front of the premises from which it is to be collected or on the curb at the side of the premises where the premises are adjacent to more than one street, as close to the curb line or edge of roadway as practicable. The cart should be placed no earlier than 5:00 p. m. for pick up the next day or later than 8:00 a. m. on the day of pick up. The cart will be removed from the curbside point by the occupant no later than 8:00 a.m. on the day after the assigned collection date. At other times, carts will be stored by the occupant where possible in locations not visible from the street or road on which the garbage is collected.
Sec. 38-62. - Cost of carts. 
The city shall initially provide and bear the cost of the carts for each residence and business. There shall be a $50.00 deposit required for the first cart to cover any damages, theft, or if the cart is lost. If the city uses all or part of the deposit to cover any damages, theft, or if the cart is lost, the occupant shall be responsible for immediately replacing such deposit up to the full $50.00 to cover any future damages, theft, or if cart is lost. In the event the first cart is insufficient to contain the garbage for a residence or business, the city will provide an additional cart or carts, provided the occupant pays a one-time $10.00 administrative fee for each additional cart. No additional deposit shall be required for additional carts, but $50.00 deposit shall stand good for any such additional carts. In the event the $50.00 deposit is insufficient to cover the actual cost of replacing any stolen, damaged or lost carts, the occupant shall immediately pay unto the city the difference. Upon the occupant's return of all carts to the city, the $50.00 deposit shall be refunded.
