Are there rules about trash removal in Sandusky?
To answer your question, there is an entire chapter in Sandusky's codified ordinances on solid waste removal. You can find it HERE by searching for Chapter 955. I scanned through the section and didn't see anything in regard to how trash haulers should leave trash cans after pick up. I did learn it's illegal to collect garbage in the city to feed to hogs — so that's your fun fact for the day.
It seems your problem has more to do with your trash hauling service than with city laws. You're a customer, so if you're dissatisfied with the job that's being done, call up your trash hauler and tell them. If you don't get the results you want, cancel your service with that hauler and go with a different company. There are at least three trash haulers that service the city, so you have some options.
