Arcadia is known for beautiful neighborhoods and high property values. To help maintain this excellent reputation the City has adopted a number of laws and regulations over the years that allow everyone to live, work and play in a healthy, safe and pleasant environment. The Arcadia Municipal Code contains all of the ordinances (laws) adopted by the Arcadia City Council and/or the voters of City of Arcadia.  For more information and guidance on common Code topics, please visit the Code Compliance Guide page (available in both English and Simplified Chinese). 

The Code Services Division monitors and enforces these laws to correct problems. Some of the issues subject to code enforcement include:

- Overgrown weeds and unkempt lawn 
- Lack of landscaping
- Building maintenance
- Lack of maintenance of a pool and green pool
- Discarded household furnishings and inoperable appliances
- Poorly maintained windows, house paint, trim, garage doors, wood siding, and other housing deterioration
- Short-term rentals
- Unoccupied residences
             - Trash containers stored in public view or left at the curbside after day of collection
- Illegal signs, banners and pennants in commercial and industrial zones
- Parking of vehicles on unpaved areas 
- Inoperable or dismantled vehicles stored in public view
- Cutting, trimming, or removing protected or mature trees without a permit
- Holiday lighting

WM - Copy        Trash Containers:
      Trash, green-waste, and recyclables are collected on Wednesdays, City-wide.  Trash containers
      should be placed at the curb for pick-up no more than 24 hours prior to collection day and removed
      5 a.m. the day after pick-up.  The containers may be out if someone is actively using it while gardening
      or performing other property maintenance but are to be put away when they stop working.

      Bulky Item Pickup: 
      Waste Management offers four free bulky-item pickups per calendar year to each single-family
      residential account and two free bulky item pickups per calendar year for each multi-family residential
      unit. Bulky items are limited to household objects that are too large to fit into trash carts and require
      more than one person to handle such as, furniture, mattresses, appliances, and electronic devices.
      Should you be in need of such service, contact Waste Management at (800) 266-7551. Requests for
      pick-up must be made at least 24 hours in advance of regular collection day(s).
