   (A)   For the purposes of this section, the definitions contained in §§ 50.51 and 94.02 of this code of ordinances shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning.
   (B)   Any outdoor trash storage area shall be limited to the disposal of refuse which shall be maintained in a neat, orderly, and sanitary condition and shall be collected on a regular basis.
   (C)   In no instance shall any such refuse be visible above the height of the required enclosure.
   (D)   Overall, the walls encompassing the storage area shall be six feet in height and shall be enclosed on three sides.  Such walls shall be constructed of materials approved by the Structural/Safety Department and shall be durable and weather resistant.  Bollards and/or other protective devices shall be installed at the opening and in the interior to the rear of any storage area to prevent damage to the screening walls.  The bollards shall consist of concrete filled six-inch diameter metal pipes, with a minimum installed depth of four feet.  The surface under any such storage area shall be constructed of concrete.  The construction of the storage area shall comply with all other ordinance and code requirements of the city.
