Republic Services trash collection must follow City of Eagle codes

Republic Services trash company has been violating the Eagle Code 4-9-3 waking me up for the past year and a half by illegally picking up commercial trash between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Legally according to City of Eagle Code, they are only able to pick up trash at commercial locations after 7:00 a.m. if near residences.  On recycling week, four days per week in my area they are picking up trash very early  in places that are near residences and waking me and I'm sure other people as well.

The drivers know that they are doing something wrong as twice I went out there and took pictures or filmed them.  The pulled up to pick up the trash, and when they saw me, they left without picking up the trash.  

The Code Enforcement officer tried to help and verified that they were violating the Code by their actions.  Republic Services changed a couple of locations' pick-up times, but left another one 50 feet away the early same time which still wakes me up along with several other locations on different days.

Because they chose to ignore the officer's direction to change the pickup times, he sent an e-mail telling me they didn't know what else to do, so the police weren't going to try to enforce the Code for them anymore.  So apparently, folks, if you break a city law in Eagle, just continue to do it and ignore them, and I guess they give up.  Or is that only for corporations?

I then wrote to the city council, and they didn't even bother responding.  So apparently no one upholds laws in Eagle.  

I want the Code enforced and Republic Services to pick up trash after 7:00 a.m. as they are supposed to when they are near residences, whether it's residential or commercial pickup.
