What makes commercial apartment properties grandfathered?

Commercial apartment properties with 6 or more units are grandfathered if the following 2 conditions are met :

  1. The City was picking up the trash at that property prior to July 1, 2013
  2. The property is still owned by the same owner that owned it on July 1, 2002

These properties will retain their grandfathered status until such time that the ownership changes. Upon a change in ownership, the grandfathered status will be lost and the City will no longer service that property. View the list of grandfathered properties. If your property is not on this list then it is not grandfathered.
