§ 51.08  CONTAINER RESPONSIBILITY.
   (A)   City-owned containers shall be maintained by the city at the city's expense; however, damage to a container which is caused by the willful or negligent act or omission of the customer or another while the container is in the customer's possession or control shall be the responsibility of the customer. The cost of repairing or replacing a lost, damaged, or destroyed container shall not exceed the cost of a new container.
   (B)   All containers not owned by the city, whether or not approved by the city, shall be the responsibility of the customer. The customer shall maintain all customer-owned containers in serviceable condition.
      (1)   Lids must remain in closed position in order to prevent solid waste from escaping from the container and to prevent the container from collecting water in the event of rain or snowfall.
      (2)   Container wheels must be maintained in order to allow for easy movement and attachment of collection equipment.
      (3)   Containers that allow solid waste to escape from the top, bottom or any side must be repaired or replaced in order for collection service to occur.
   (C)   Commercial two cubic yard or three cubic yard dumpsters:
      (1)   It shall be the responsibility of the owner, occupant or other person in charge of premises to provide a container for the storage of such solid waste between collections. The size of the container shall be determined by the owner, occupant or other person in charge, and the Department.
      (2)   Commercial dumpsters shall be purchased by the customer from a private source.
      (3)   Any required maintenance to the commercial dumpster shall be the responsibility of the container owner.
