The Marshall Zoning Ordinance and Marshall Housing Code require that all trash, garbage, or any other material intended for disposal be stored in designated containers and prohibit accumulation of dead organic matter, debris, old furniture, appliances, mattresses, and any combustible materials on premises; no open storage of any materials is permitted in residential districts.

All the items listed above may constitute fire and health hazard, harbor rodents and mosquitoes, produce bad odor, and are, at the end, unsightly, thus contributing to reduced quality of life in the neighborhood and decreased property values.

Please be a good neighbor and keep your yard tidy and in good order. Let’s make Marshall even more beautiful!

Please call Community Development Department with any questions about yard maintenance at 507-537-6773.
