§ 50.45  COMMERCIAL COLLECTION; MINIMUM COLLECTION STANDARDS.
   (A)   The collection and removal of garbage and trash from houses, buildings and premises used for industrial, commercial, or institutional purposes shall be made as often as necessary in order to maintain such premises free of accumulation of garbage and trash. The local regulatory authority shall be authorized to require industrial, commercial arid institutional customers to increase collection frequency or size of commercial garbage containers to ensure compliance with the provisions of this article. It will be the responsibility of the owner, occupant or tenant of any business to ensure the enclosure is accessible by the collection vehicle on the date of service. Ensuring access may require the gates to be opened and/or unlocked. Failure by the owner, occupant or tenant to ensure access may result in a fee charged to the account in accordance with city ordinance. When an enclosure for the property exists it must be utilized by the occupant for the minimum container size and frequency necessary to prevent unsightly or unsanitary conditions from developing.
   (B)   All food service establishments shall maintain garbage and trash collection at a frequency of not less than two times each week, unless granted written approval from the local regulatory authority. Such approval may be revoked, denied or suspended at any time by the local regulatory authority when, in their opinion, the premises have become unsanitary due to collections less frequently than two times each week. Food establishments may not request commercial hand-load service.
   (C)   Garbage and trash collection from multifamily residential complexes which provide or use mechanical packers or compactors may be made one time each week upon written approval of the local regulatory authority. Such approval may be revoked, denied or suspended at any time by the local regulatory authority when, in their opinion, the premises have become unsanitary due to collections less frequently than two times each week. Multifamily residential complexes may not request commercial hand-load service.
   (D)   All small commercial businesses utilizing commercial hand-load garbage service on the effective date of this chapter shall have a minimum of 90 days from the effective date of this chapter to begin commercial container service. Commercial garbage container service may begin prior to the construction of an appropriate enclosure for the container. However, an enclosure for the container(s) shall be constructed no more than 12 months from the effective date of this chapter.
   (E)   Small commercial businesses utilizing commercial hand-load service at the effective date of this chapter may submit a written request for small commercial garbage service as provided in this chapter in accordance with this subchapter. If the request or appeal is denied, the business must begin commercial container service within 90 days from the date of denial and or loss of appeal, and must provide an enclosure for the container(s) within 12 months from the effective date of this chapter.
