Effective September 1, 2016, it shall be mandatory for all persons, properties and uses as described herein and located within the Village to utilize the Village-provided residential solid waste and residential recyclables service ("Village services") subject to and/or except as follows:
Such governmental units of New York State, Oswego County, the United States and school districts as have asserted a legal sovereign authority relative to this mandate by Village may determine not to utilize the Village service and shall not be subject to any exemption fees hereinafter described and established by Village.
For collection and disposal of such items or substances as described at § 161-1B that are not included under the Village service for residential solid waste and residential recyclables or which are brush, tree parts not properly bundled and/or household and similar appliances and furnishings as are or may become limited, restricted, expanded and/or prohibited in this § 161-1.1 and this potentially resulting in an additional charge, such persons may dispose of same personally or by a contractor or hauler otherwise complying with the Village Code, including its hauler licensing provisions.
No single, duplex and/or multiple-family residential premises or their owners, occupants or tenants may be exempted from this requirement.
Any commercial premises or use and within which, and to the extent any business, retail, services, trade, manufacturing, industrial or other such use generating or producing residential and nonresidential solid waste and recyclables is conducted may be exempted from such requirement of mandating Village services only upon approval of such exemption by the Village Board of Trustees. The Village Board shall consider same for such applicant, premises and uses existing as of the effective date hereof only, upon written application made not later than August 1, 2016, signed and sworn to and/or affirmed as true and accurate before a notary public by the owner of the premises within which such commercial use seeking exemption is situate and evidencing the satisfaction of the Village Board that:
Its existing or proposed hauler contract provisions for the premises and/or particular use is upon terms and conditions that are substantially/materially more practical, administrative, and/or economically advantageous than service provided by Village. Absent material additional cost or similar significant practical difficulty, the fact that use of the Village service and an additional outside service for the purpose of collection and disposal of nonresidential solid waste and recyclables shall not in and of itself standing alone be of sufficient proof to warrant an exception;
The applicant for exemption has documentary proof (contract or firm proposal) of an existing or proposed hauler that will provide service(s) on the date when Village service takes place, or otherwise only as necessary, on such date(s) and within times as approved by the Village Board; and shall have obtained the necessary license agreeing to comply with such conditions as required by the Village Board;
The Village Board has received and reviewed a copy of such existing or proposed hauler contract or firm quote and other documents as necessary to evidence the facts attested to in support of the application;
The Village Board shall upon the same requirements and conditions consider the application of any commercial use newly established after August 1, 2016, provided application is made not later than 60 days following commencement of business operations;
Except as provided hereinabove at § 161-1.1A(1), or in the event the Village Board makes a specific finding the hardship determined under § 161-1.1A(4)(a) under the applicant's specific circumstances, an exempted premises or commercial use shall nevertheless be subject to an exemption fee as shall be established by the Village Board from time to time, the payment of which shall be subject to the provisions hereof applicable to fees and additional charges for the Village service including without limitation §§ 161-9 and 161-10 hereof. In the case of a significantly unique and extraordinary hardship qualifying exception, such exemption fee may be partially rather than wholly exempted.

Any owner and/or other responsible person(s) occupying or otherwise legally generating or producing from premises subject to this Chapter 161 and not served by a securely covered and screened dumpster shall provide separate, suitable, sanitary containers for residential solid waste. Such containers when filled shall not exceed 45 gallons in volume nor 75 pounds in weight. All containers must be securely covered rigid plastic or metal containers. Plastic bags not in covered containers or containers exceeding the foregoing weight and volume limits may not be picked up, or if picked up may result in an additional charge to the owner and/or other responsible persons. All such items shall be placed inside of the street curbing and pavement and shall not obstruct drainage flow to or be placed atop any gutters. The Village Board, under § 161-2E hereof, specifically reserves the right to, by duly adopted resolution, impose total maximum quantities, volumes and/or weights and/or impose modified fees in relation to same.
Each owner and/or other responsible person(s) shall also provide separate sanitary containers for residential recyclables, other than discarded newspaper, magazines, cardboard and flat papers.

Any additional charges to an owner and/or other responsible person(s) relating to disposal of items or substances that are not residential solid waste or residential recyclables or of quantities, volumes or weights of such permitted residential solid waste or residential recyclables in excess of that permitted hereunder shall be in violation and may be invoiced for fines, costs and expenses as provided at § 161-2B hereof from, and the same shall be due and payable only to the Village of Phoenix. Such owner and/or other responsible person(s), as well as any tenant or occupant generating or producing same, or permitting same to be or remain placed at the curbside fronting their premises, shall be presumed jointly and severally liable, subject to any tenant or occupant of multiunit premises right to rebut same by credible evidence that the owner or another tenant is solely responsible for such conduct. Reference in this Chapter 161 to a "person" shall mean any such owner and tenant/occupant(s) and/or other responsible persons.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Chapter 161 to the contrary or otherwise, the Village Board has determined that the provisions of this Chapter 161, as so amended by Local Law No. 3-2016, are intended to address certain inconsistencies as between the existing Chapter 161 requirements, Village of Phoenix owners and other responsible person(s) and hauler understandings and policies as have existed to date and the requirements of Oswego County local law, and a recognition and concern that collection and disposal costs to Village will not exceed approved annual Village budget and expected revenues. Accordingly, and notwithstanding any other provisions of this Chapter 161 to the contrary or otherwise, following the effective date hereof, as may be deemed reasonable and/or necessary, the Village Board may, by duly adopted resolutions, from time to time, further clarify, supplement or amend the foregoing and following provisions, including without limitation to expand or restrict the scope of Village services and/or premises covered and solid waste subject hereto and to establish and modify additional charges, fees and any other charges related to the application and enforcement of this chapter.

The Village Board of Trustees has specifically determined that the failure to abide by the provisions of this Chapter 161 is a public health and safety concern necessitating exercise of the Village police power. Accordingly, in the event of any efforts, action or proceeding commenced by the Village of Phoenix relative to the enforcement or violation of this chapter (including without limitation the correction or remedy of a violative condition, collection of fees and additional charges due Village under § 161-9), service by certified or registered mail return receipt requested upon the premises' owner and any other responsible person(s), at the last designated owner address, as shown on the Village of Phoenix or Town of Schroeppel assessment records, or otherwise at the premises' address, shall be deemed good and sufficient service and shall be legally sufficient in lieu of any requirement of service of process under the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules or Real Premises Actions and Proceedings Law. Upon such notice, and following an opportunity to be heard at a regular or special meeting of the Village Board of Trustees as advised of in such notice or any subsequent notice sent in the same manner (such hearing to be held not less than 15 nor more than 60 days from the posting date of such notice), the Village Board may resolve that it shall be reimbursed for all such fees and additional charges including without limitation the costs of all such fees, additional charges, corrective or cure efforts and of proper transport and disposal, plus 20% administration cost by assessment and levy upon the premises subject of same, and the expenses so assessed shall constitute a lien and a charge on the premises on which it is levied until paid or otherwise satisfied or discharged and shall be collected in the same manner and at the same time as other Village charges. It shall not be a defense to such assessment that the violation or claim for unpaid fees or additional charges were not as a result of the title owner not being specifically aware of nor having generated or produced such solid waste, items or substances or that other responsible person(s) (not have in title) may have been actually contractually or legally responsible for same or any other acts or omissions resulting in the accrual of fees and additional charges.
Whenever the Village has ordered the payment of reimbursement for unpaid fees or additional charges hereinabove provided in § 161-10A by assessment and levy upon premises, the Village Clerk shall, upon Village Board approval and following invoice to the premises owner and to other responsible person(s) (if any), cause a notice of intent to levy such costs and expenses against said lots or parcels of land in a form approved by the Village Attorney, be recorded in the records of the Oswego County Clerk's Office in order that such notice shall be indexed against the said premises as notice to subsequent transferees or other acquiring any interest in said premises of the intention by the Village to assess and levy the amount of such expenses upon said lots or parcels of land. The foregoing notwithstanding, the failure of the Village Clerk to record such notice of intent to levy shall not, however, affect or impair the validity of any lien or assessment of such costs and expenses later imposed against such premises, the owner(s) thereof or any subsequent transferees or others acquiring any interest in such premises.
[Amended 2-16-1999 by L.L. No. 1-1999]
Any violation of this chapter shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $250 or imprisonment for up to 15 days, or both such fine and imprisonment.
