Are these carts a traffic safety hazard?

The city has allowed yard-waste carts, which are the same size and shape as the garbage rollout carts, to be placed at the curb for years, and this has not created safety problems for vehicles or for pedestrians. There are areas where the steepness of the terrain, the narrowness of the street, the amount of on-street parking, or other unusual situations may require adjustment of the typical cart placements. In these cases, the Public Works staff will work with the affected citizens to identify the best placement locations.
