A. 
Failure to observe these regulations shall be sufficient grounds for suspension or revocation of the permit as hereinafter provided.
1. 
All garbage and other refuse accepted by the permittee shall be thoroughly compacted by equipment of sufficient weight and capacity to carry out all necessary operations. Sufficient auxiliary equipment shall be available to the site or otherwise available to continue operations in case of equipment breakdown.
2. 
Mixed refuse material shall be spread on the landfill's working face so the depth does not exceed two (2) feet prior to its compaction.
3. 
The landfill area shall be continually policed to prevent fire and smoke and the blowing of papers, shall be neat and orderly at all times and shall be covered at the end of each day's operation, as well as when wind conditions warrant it through the day, with sufficient material to prevent blowing papers and unsightly conditions.

A minimum depth of twelve (12) inches of compacted cover and final spread cover material shall be kept on all inactive faces of the landfill at all times. The active faces of the landfill shall be covered at the end of each day's operation with at least six (6) inches of covered material.
5. 
When the fill has been brought up to two (2) feet below the desired finished grade, it shall be covered with at least twenty-four (24) inches of compacted cover material graded and seeded in an erosion-preventative manner. The finally-graded and seeded finished fill surface shall be maintained by the operator for a period of two (2) years after filling operations have been completed.
6. 
Where the trench system of sanitary landfill is used, successive parallel trenches must be separated by an adequate inter-trench area.
7. 
Where the landfill operation is conducted in a ravine, the ravine side shall be terraced prior to land-filling if the slope of the ravine side is 1:1 or greater.
8. 
In the event refuse material exists on the site at the time the permit is issued, whether in the form of an open dump or any other form, such refuse material shall be collected, compacted and overlaid with cover material at least two (2) feet in depth at the finished grade, or with at least six (6) inches of cover material on areas in which landfilling operations will be conducted. This cover operation shall be completed within fifteen (15) working days after the permit issuance for the sanitary landfill, unless some other period of time is specified in the permit.

The salvage or scavenging of materials from the landfill is prohibited.
12. 
The burning of solid waste on the landfill site is prohibited.
13. 
No landfill operations shall be conducted so that fill will be placed in stream beds or other areas where streams would be obstructed or where erosion by the stream would remove cover material. There shall be no seepage or drainage of any material from the fill of such nature as would constitute an odor nuisance or health hazard, or pollute any watercourse or underground water aquifer.
14. 
The permittee shall provide an access road passable in all types of weather conditions.

The permittee shall provide such surface drainage facilities on the landfill site for storm water, to prevent standing pools of water on the finished face of the landfill six (6) hours after the last precipitation.
