Removal of Property Eviction Set-Outs


The City of Frederick does not provide this service on a routine basis. It is the property owner's responsibility to remove larger or set out items. When a set out is identified, the city notifies the property owner and he, or his evicted tenant, is given 48 hours to remove the items. In the event that the property owner shall fail or refuse to comply, he shall be fined $100 for each successive 24-hour period that the material remains. At any time, it shall be lawful for the city to remove and dispose of the material and charge the cost to the violator.
