Halacha - Garbage Removal before Yom tov
Submitted by Chaim Zvi Ehrenreich  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: If my garbage collection comes on the first day Yom tov, am i allowed to put the garbage in the street on erev yom tov, so that the sanitation dept should take it on yom tov. The issue in my mind is that they are going to take the garbage out of the tchum on yom tov. is that assur? Secondly, am i allowed to bring the garbage bins back up my driveway on yom tov, if i dont need them on yom tov, but i am legally not allowed to keep them on the street for 2 days, and they might get lost or damaged?

Putting the garbage out Erev Yom Tov is not a problem. You do not need to concern yourself with the possibility that that the non-Jewish sanitation workers will choose to ship the refuse outside of the techum to avoid having an abundance of garbage at hand.

However, the garbage cans are a basis for a Muktza Machmas Gufo during Bein HaShemashos and remain muktza the second day as well. A Muktza Machmas Gufo may not be moved to prevent its getting damaged.
