Sec. 14-2.2. Non-putrescible, dry waste compactor permit.
A non-putrescible, dry waste compactor permit, provided by
the city public works director, will allow non-putrescible, dry waste to be
accumulated for a period of not more than thirty-one days unless specifically
noted in writing on the permit. In no case shall the accumulation period for
non-putrescible, dry waste exceed sixty-two days.
The requirements for this permit are:
A. The non-putrescible, dry waste must be contained in an
industry standard type, electrical or hydraulically operated, compactor
B. The compactor must be legally sited and
C. The only waste contained in the compactor will be
non-putrescible, dry waste.
In order to receive a non-putrescible, dry waste compactor
permit that exceeds the baseline thirty-one day limit, the owner or person in
charge of the compactor shall provide any and all documentation, as required by
the public works director that substantiates the extenuating circumstances
supporting the need for exceeding the baseline thirty-one day limit. No matter
what documentation is provided, the public works director is not obligated to
approve a time extension beyond the thirty-one day baseline limit.
If at any time during the permitted period the owner or
person in charge of the compactor makes any material changes in the operation of
the compactor, materials contained in the compactor, or any other default in the
above requirements, said owner or person in charge is required to notify the
city public works director in writing withdrawing their request for permit or
modifying the current permit. Failure to do so will be cause for revocation of
any existing permit for that compactor and/or property.
The non-putrescible, dry waste compactor permit is valid for
three years from the date of approval. At the end of this period, the owner or
person in charge of the compactor shall reapply for renewal of their permit by
submitting a new permit application. If the permit is not renewed, or revoked
for any reason, the non-putrescible, dry waste accumulating on their property
will be subject to the period of removal requirements as outlined in Section
14-2. An appropriate processing fee may be established by resolution of the
council. (Ord. No. 2413 (NCS), § 1.)
