With respect to properties not served by cubic yard containers:
(A) Refuse shall be stored on the premises of a property pending collection only in solid waste containers meeting the requirements of this chapter.
(B) Garbage, animal wastes (such as pet feces and cage and litter box wastes) and human wastes (such as diapers) shall be stored in watertight bags or containers before being placed in solid waste containers for collection.
(C) Except as otherwise provided in this section, solid waste containers may not be stored between scheduled pickups between a street and the side of a dwelling facing the street unless the solid waste containers are stored within:
(1) A completely enclosed structure such as a garage or shed; or
(2) An opaque enclosure specifically designed for storing solid waste containers that is enclosed on all four sides and on the top so as to prevent entry of animals, and that is located outside of the street right-of-way unless an appropriate encroachment agreement has been obtained for the enclosure.
(D) Solid wastes shall be placed adjacent to the street for collection on the scheduled collection day or after dark on the preceding day. After collection, all solid waste containers and all uncollected solid wastes shall be removed to a storage location that complies with division (C) above by 9:00 a.m. on the day following the collection day.
(E) If the Administrator determines that because of physical infirmity, the occupant of a property cannot without undue hardship transport the solid wastes from the storage location required by division (C) above to the collection point required by division (D) above, the Administrator may authorize the occupant to store solid wastes at a convenient location away from the curb between scheduled pickups or provide on-premises pickup.
(F) Containers that do not meet the requirements of this chapter may be treated as solid wastes and collected as such.
