Temporary Storage Containers.
A temporary storage or disposal container, meaning any storage or disposal container with a volume of six (6) cubic yards or larger which is used or intended for use as temporary or extended storage or disposal containers, shall be situated outdoors on residential or commercial property for a period of no more than twenty-four (24) hours unless a permit for extended usage is applied for and granted by the City Clerk. No resident or commercial business owner or operator shall place more than one (1) such temporary storage or disposal container on its property at any time.
A temporary storage or disposal container used for the hauling and disposal of demolition or construction waste ("dumpster") in the course of permitted construction will be permitted on the property during the active demolition/construction of a permitted project but not longer than six (6) months, unless a new application is made and approved. Such approval shall require demonstration of adequate progress toward completion of the permitted project. All sites upon which construction or demolition activities will generate any waste shall be equipped with an adequate and suitable dumpster for the deposit of such waste. All waste generated by construction or demolition activities shall be deposited into the required dumpster and shall not be allowed to accumulate upon the site. The dumpster shall be of sufficient size, dimensions and construction to adequately contain all waste at the site. Only waste material that is related to the site shall be deposited in the dumpster. Dumpsters shall be covered or removed when no construction activity is present and shall be emptied at periodic intervals to prevent overloading; the scattering of materials contained therein, noxious odors and/or other nuisances. Dumpsters may not remain on inactive demolition/ construction sites. Dumpsters shall be located completely on the site rather than on streets, highways or public property. When it is not practical to place dumpsters on the site, a permit shall be obtained from the City prior to the placement of the dumpster on public property for not more than seven (7) days, and if the dumpster is to remain on public property overnight, adequate barricades with flashing lights shall be placed one at each side of the dumpster so that the lights are visible to oncoming traffic.
Applications for the extended usage of a temporary storage or disposal container shall be maintained by the City Clerk and made available to any applicant on which the applicant shall set forth specifically the size and type of container, the location of the container on the property and the expected duration of the placement of the container on the property. No such application shall be approved for extended usage for an "extended period" of more than six (6) months. Application fees shall be assessed pursuant to a schedule of fees periodically approved by the Board of Aldermen.
