Storage containers may be stored on the public street only after an encroachment permit has been obtained from the Public Works Department. In addition, storage containers on residential streets are allowed only if a building permit has been obtained from the Building Division.
A storage container is defined as a private container that carries personal property or furniture. An example of a storage container is a large metal shipping container (one that is transported via ocean carrier, train or semi-truck, i.e. Maersk) or another example of a storage container is one that a storage facility (i.e. Public Storage) drops off for you to fill.
