A. It is unlawful for any Small Quantity Generator in a Residential area to keep or store any Garbage within Containers except those provided by the City’s Authorized Collector. Large Quantity Generators shall utilize Containers provided by the City’s Authorized Collector. Compactor Containers or other receptacles provided by Large Quantity Generators, such as Commercial and Industrial customers, must be approved by the City’s Authorized Collector for compatibility with Collection equipment before use. Use of incompatible compactors or other Containers is not allowed and the purchase or lease of such equipment will not be considered grounds for an exemption from mandatory service.

B. Every individual or Entity having the care or control of any premises or property within the City where Garbage accumulates or exists shall cause such Garbage to be placed and kept in watertight Containers, with lids securely fitted, and in a number adequate to contain the total amount of Garbage accumulating during the maximum allowed one-week interval between each Collection or Removal thereof.

C. Enclosures for Garbage Containers must be of adequate size to hold the number of Containers required to temporarily store the Garbage generated in between service intervals, pursuant to subsection (A) of this section. The enclosures shall also be adequate in size to accommodate other ancillary Collection and Removal services, i.e., grease rendering as defined in CVMC 19.58.340.
