Refuse Storage Containers
Residential solid waste should be stored in containers between 20-35 gallons in nominal capacity. Containers should be leak proof, waterproof, and fitted with a fly tight lid and be properly covered at all times except when depositing or removing waste. The containers should have handles, bails, or other suitable lifting devices.
Containers should be originally manufactured for residential sold waste. The containers should be lightweight and sturdy. Galvanized metal containers, or rubber, fiberglass or plastic containers which do not become brittle in cold weather may be used. Disposable solid waste containers with suitable frames or containers as approved by the director may also be used for storage of residential solid waste.
