(A) It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to leave, store or deposit any building material (new or used), lumber, brick, gravel, sand or dirt on any lot or lots or yard or other property in the city, except during such reasonable time as a house or structure is under actual construction and properly permitted by the city, except for dirt and sand being used by the occupant of a home on such property for leveling, grading or landscaping purposes.
(B) During construction, all debris (including concrete, brick, lumber, building materials, paper, cups and sacks) shall be properly disposed of on a daily basis. On major remodels and new construction, a commercial trash container (of a size determined by the Building Inspector) shall be provided and emptied as needed. Large pieces of lumber or building material shall be stacked neatly where not obtrusive to the neighbors. Dirt, mud, or debris in streets or alleys, or on any public sidewalk or adjacent private property as a result of grading, construction, demolition or other activities must be properly removed on a daily basis. At the discretion of the Building Inspector, any violation of the above requirements may result in the stoppage of all work on the building site, cancellation of the building permit, and/or issuance of citations. The Building Inspector shall determine the size of the required commercial trash container relative to the size of the project and the estimated amount of resulting construction debris. At all times during construction, the owner, contractor, subcontractor, or other person in charge of or working on the construction project shall, on a daily basis, have the duty of keeping the site clean from all such debris.
