Residential Trash out Illegally

My neighbor consistently puts his trash bins on the street when no trash pickup is scheduled, and often leaves them out for days at a time. He also puts his bins out very early in the day (often 2 pm or earlier.) I have explained to him that the bins can't go out until 5 pm the day prior to pickup, but he has repeatedly ignored me. The bins obstruct the sidewalk, particularly in inclement weather, and make it dangerous for children and elderly neighbors to move about the neighborhood. I'm hopeful that a citation from the city might convince him that he does not understand city ordinances.
