Sec. 21.2-11. Accumulation of solid waste.
(a) Each residence, small commercial establishment or person having solid waste will be provided with one city approved waste container adequate to contain the solid waste generated at said establishment which accumulates between periods of removal from the premises, and shall place and keep all solid waste therein until disposal. Residents and small commercial establishments requiring more than one trash cart may purchase from the city additional carts at cost. These carts become the property of the resident. Solid waste may not accumulate outside of the cart(s) unless in approved plastic bags. Household waste that a resident is storing to bring to the RSA facility or for other disposal must be stored in closed containers in such a manner so as to not attract animals, emit offending odors, or be a safety or health risk, and such waste may not be stored for a period of more than one month.
(b) It shall be unlawful for anyone to throw or to cause to accumulate onto the streets, sidewalks or private property any solid waste or any other substance that will render the street or premises unclean or unsightly or unsafe to any person or vehicle using the streets or liable to injuriously affect the health or safety of the community.
